Clinton's Comeback Redux

Outside the Beltway has a detailed post-mortem of why Clinton did as well as she did in New Hampshire, despite predictions that Obama would win there. Of particular note is that polling numbers shortly before the election were accurate for every candidate but Clinton -- so the claims that there is a Bradley Effect going on here, where people told pollsters that they liked Obama but then voted for Clinton, do not seem to hold a lot of water. As for the rest, I'll leave that to you to decide. But it's great to see tight races on both sides of the aisle. (Now, if only we could have a couple of brokered conventions, my wonkish dreams could all come true.)
