Mrs. Clinton’s victory came after her advisers had lowered expectations with talk of missteps in strategy and concern about Mr. Obama’s momentum coming out of the Iowa caucuses.
Mrs. Clinton told supporters, “I want especially to thank New Hampshire. Over the last week I listened to you and in the process I found my own voice.”
She added, “Together, let’s give America the kind of comeback New Hampshire has just given me.’
Mr. Obama conceded the race to Mrs. Clinton, congratulating her on a “hard-fought victory.”
And how THRILLED am I to have lived long enough to see two such extraordinarily gifted candidates running neck-and-neck for the highest office in the land!! It's going to make for a VERY interesting primary here in California ... for a change!
