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.

USA Today:

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:

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.  Next round: Moderator Chris Wallace turns the subject to Social Security:
Bryan / Hot Air:
Videos: Mitt and Mike go a couple of rounds Update: Fred's speech on immigration added  —  Romney's interest tonight is in pushing back the Huckabee surge; Huck wants to knock off Romney now, take over as many of his supporters as he can and move on to the bigger states that Giuliani is counting on.

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.

John Amato / Crooks and Liars:
Video of O'Reilly calling Obama staffer an “SOB” and “low class”  —  Poor O'Reilly, he wasn't able to do what his big ego wanted to and he got all upset .  Here's some of BillO's meltdown with an Obama staffer in NH.  It's probably after most of the ruckus that occurred between the two was over.
Mark Leibovich / New York Times:
In New Hampshire, Bill Clinton Is Finding 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.
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?
