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.

Romney Rising  —  Whoa.  Did you see the Luntz focus group of undecided voters: an overwhelming surge to Romney.  This was the first well-managed debate and Romney had the best of all of his debate showings.  —  Oliver Wendall Holmes once famously remarked about FDR that the president had a A …

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:

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.

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?
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.
