How 'Bout That Hillary? Clinton Proves The Pundits Wrong

Just when nearly everyone in the chattering class was writing off Hillary and her supposedly faltering campaign, Sen. Clinton wins in New Hampshire.

Only yesterday, the polls showed a widening Obama surge. The voters were telling the pollsters that the Illinois senator was their man. Political blogs said Hillary and her campaign were in a panic mode, ready to concede New Hampshire and try again elsewhere.

What a difference an actual election makes. Against all odds, Hillary pulled out a big win.

We have no insight into the minds of New Hampshire voters, but we like it when the citizens defy expectations. Stand by, folks: this could get interesting.

To account for Hillary's unexpectedly strong showing, the redoubtable blogger Digby hypothesizes "'The Tweety Effect,' where the misogyny of a talking head in the MSM so enrages a demographic that they go out and vote in a manner that will put egg on the face of the talking head."
