Hillary advisers fear N.H. loss  —  MANCHESTER, N.H. — Sen. Hillary Clinton's strategists, desperate for a win in New Hampshire, have decided against unleashing attack ads against Sen. Barack Obama before Tuesday's primary, Democratic sources said.  —  The senator's aides concluded …
Dean Barnett / Weekly Standard:
Is There Something Happening Here?  —  Something rather odd is happening in New Hampshire, and for once it has nothing to do with my Nashua based in-laws.  While bearing in mind that what follows may be a Romney guy struggling to keep hope alive...  Rasmussen's polls show the race tightening.

Sunday night roundtable: The Fox News/GOP debate  —  9:35pm Eastern.  Wow.  Frank Luntz's focus group was just asked about Romney.  Only a few raised their hands to say they supported him before the debate.  Almost all raised their hands to say they were supporting him afterward.  Look:
The Big Trunk / Power Line:
SCORING TONIGHT'S GOP CANDIDATES' FORUM  —  I'd like to score this discussion like a prize fight, by round.  Here we go.  First round: … I score this round on taxes as a tie between Giuliani and Romney.  Third round: Moderator Chris Wallace turns the subject to Social Security:
The Corner:
Huck & McCain  —  Huckabee, after three ducks, now suggests that he raised taxes because of a court order.  Now, all those taxes weren't raised because of a court order.  —  This is important because we are now hearing how tax cuts are not a big issue anymore, yet Huckabee and McCain clearly …

Bad Romney Staffer!  Bad!  Bad!  Bad!  —  Absolutely hilarious.  —  GMP1 thinks that the girl in the video is a Romney staffer.  —  Anyway, what Romney staffer (or volunteer or supporter) pulls a stunt like this in front of at least two video cameras (the one recording the footage …

Mary Katharine Ham / TownHall Blog:
Winners and Losers: Rank 'Em Up  —  1. Mitt: He was a stronger, more real version of Mitt tonight.  I truly enjoyed it, and I haven't thought he's won a debate since the very first Republican debate.  I think he probably did himself a lot of good in New Hampshire tonight, and the Luntz focus group shows it.

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
GOP DEBATE WRAP-UP  —  First, I think you have to say that tonight's Republican debate didn't hold a candle to yesterday's in terms of entertainment firepower.  That said, all jokes aside, Mitt Romney did much, much better than he did last night.  It didn't take much of course.

Kevin Drum / Washington Monthly:
THE PACK....Ezra Klein watches pack journalism at work, 2008 style, and it's not pretty.  Nickel version: If some other reporter says Hillary Clinton melted down because she displayed a flash of emotion in last night's debate, then she melted down.  After all, who are you going to believe, the spin room or your own lyin' eyes?
Robin Koerner / The Moderate Voice:
Obama Lifts Lid on Latent Global Pro-Americanism  —  A list of the most recent headlines posted by the global news aggregator, Watching America, shows that the Obama phenomenon is sending ripples far and fast.  There's enough global output that WA is continuing its multiple Obama feature with new content into the new week.
Discussion: Watching America
Ben Smith / The Politico:
Back to Iraq  —  In Nashua, Hillary skates on the edge of Iraq revisionism: … Now, that's probably true in the literal, alternate history sense: As president, she wouldn't have taken the U.S. into war.  But it also revives a conversation that had flagged, about her initial vote for the use of force.
Alessandra Stanley / New York Times:
He Came, and He Saw, but Did He Moderate?  —  The first debates after the Iowa caucuses were a crucible for the candidates, but they were also a test of the Gibson Doctrine.  ABC's anchor, Charles Gibson, began the evening with a policy statement: “The less of a moderator, the better.”
