New Hampshire is going to be make or break for some

There is some interesting movement in the GOP and Dem races for president, respectively. Where the GOP is involved, Romney has to emerge as a winner in New Hampshire, just to be able to keep playing in the race as an ultimately viable candidate, in my opinion. New Hampshire should be the race where he absolutely wins it (since he is a former Massachusetts governor). I think it's fair to say that if he can't win New Hampshire, he's probably not going to have a long life in the presidential race.

However, Huckabee seems to be coming on very strong in the wake of his Iowa win, and New Hampshire has traditionally been McCain country. So this is going to be interesting to watch.

As for Giuliani: At what point is the supposed front runner going to run up front?

In the Democratic Party, Obama is picking up speed. Personally, I have always been a Hillary Clinton person. But, with that said, Hillary needs to win in New Hampshire or it's probably going to mean she doesn't have what it takes to go to the next level. Ultimately, though, whether it's Hillary or Obama, I would personally vote for any Democrat over any Republican for president during this cycle. Obama, while junior and relatively inexperienced compared to the others in the field, stands for the right things, in my book, even if he isn't the candidate I would have picked ideally (because he didn't finish a whole term in the U.S. Senate).

Interesting on the headline and go to the AP story about the GOP.
