TALK OF HILLARY EXIT ENGULFS CAMPAIGNS  —  Facing a double-digit defeat in New Hampshire, a sudden collapse in national polls and an expected fund-raising drought, Senator Hillary Clinton is preparing for a tough decision: Does she get out of the race?  And when?!
Robert Shrum / NY Daily News:
Sen. Clinton's massive mistake - and the final chance to fix it  —  Be Our Guest  —  If (although I strongly suspect the right word is “when") Hillary Clinton loses tomorrow's New Hampshire primary, there will be a few proto-obituaries for her campaign and many more stories about how it will be “shaken up” or “relaunched.”
Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby New Hampshire Tracking Poll: Big “Mo-bama” Grabs Dems in Granite State; McCain Regains Lead Over Romney in GOP Battle  —  UTICA, New York - Democrat Barack Obama's dramatic post-Iowa momentum has come to full bloom in the Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby New Hampshire daily tracking poll …
Mark Leibovich / New York Times:
In New Hampshire, Bill Clinton Finds Less Spark  —  DURHAM, N.H. — Is this what it would have been like had Elvis been reduced to playing Reno?  —  Former President Bill Clinton has been drawing sleepy and sometimes smallish crowds at big venues in the state that revived his presidential campaign in 1992.

Roger Simon / The Politico:
Can you win on dull?  —  NASHUA, N.H. — Two candidates, one room, two days and two worlds apart.  —  That was Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the Nashua High School North gymnasium Saturday and Sunday.  —  And the difference between the two candidates was never more apparent.

William Kristol / New York Times:
President Mike Huckabee?  —  MANCHESTER, N.H.  —  Thank you, Senator Obama.  You've defeated Senator Clinton in Iowa.  It looks as if you're about to beat her in New Hampshire.  There will be no Clinton Restoration.  A nation turns its grateful eyes to you.
Matthew Yglesias:
The Electable Huckabee  —  The trouble with having Bill Kristol as a New York Times columnist is not just that he's prone to saying substantive things about the issues that I disagree with.  He's also the kind of guy who when he goes out on a weird limb and says Mike Huckabee would have a good chance …

Jane Hamsher / Firedoglake:
Ron Paul Supporters Confront Frank Luntz  —  It's always great when Fox News calls for civility.  After excluding Ron Paul (who is, per some polls, in a statistical tie for third in the GOP New Hampshire primary) from the debate last night, Fox's official pollster Frank Luntz's feathers …

Discussion: The New Republic
The Corner:
Mitt and Taxes  —  Another thing.  When Huckabee said to Romney, “You opposed those Bush tax cuts in 2002,” and “Did you support or oppose the 2002 Bush tax cuts?"  Romney said, “I never opposed the Bush 2002 tax cuts.  I supported them.  The first comment I made about the Bush tax cuts was that I supported the Bush tax cuts.
Discussion: Say Anything
Michael O'Hanlon / Wall Street Journal:
Obama and Iraq  —  One of Sen. Barack Obama's many strengths is his ability to inspire beyond party lines.  Because he lacks the baggage of the past, and because his melodic message of hope speaks to many, he garnered much more support from independents in Iowa than either Hillary Clinton or John Edwards.
David Knowles / Political Machine:
Bad Sign for Romney  —  Politics is dirty business.  And some Mitt Romney supporters (staff members?) have been caught on camera showing just how low they can go.  Watch this insanity.  —  I know about these kinds of shenanigans first hand.  Back in '04 I grudgingly put up a Kerry/Edwards sign …
