Hillary achieves unexpected victory, McCain defeats Romney

Despite a dozen weekend polls that all showed Obama leading by upwards of 10 percent and exit polls pointing to a rout over Hillary, New Hamshire voters proved that THEY (not the media, polling firms, and spin masters on FOX, MSNBC, and CNN) determine the election.

Something to notice: Hillary's concession speech in Iowa was analyzed and noted for the supporters standing behind her in the background shots: General Wesley Clark, former Sec. of State Madeleine Albright, and other "old" persons who represented a presidential administration of the past--unlike Obama who surrounded himself with young people.
