How I see New Hampshire Shaping Up

After viewing the debates in New Hampshire Saturday, I saw several things that were interesting.
1. Mitt Romney finally stopped looking like "Father Knows Best" and actually got down and dirty a bit. He really went after Huckabee on a couple occasions.
2. Mike Huckabee was not smiling quite as much as before, as I think he knows that now the "ah shucks" thing is not going to work and he is going to have to slug it out with the other candidates.
3. Fred Thompson got left out, but he reminded my of why I love him, he shows his disdain for the whole process and he reminded me of Walther Matthau in "Grumpy Old Men".
4. John McCain looked Presidential.
5. Barack Obama looked cool and confident.
6. Hillary Clinton looked very very panicked.

So, I believe on the Republican side this will be the New Hampshire outcome:
John McCain
Mitt Romney
Fred Thompson
Mike Huckabee
Rudy Giuliani

Barack Obama narrowly wins
Hillary Clinton
John Edwards

After New Hampshire comes Super Tuesday, and before that, I think at least one Republican will bow out, but I think that Republican may be a Vice Presidential candidate.
So, let the voting begin in New Hampshire!

I find it odd that you love Thompson so much for "not playing the political game", but he used to exit his limo a few blocks from rallies and drive the rest in a pick up truck to fool people into thinking he was for the common man and was a common man. You have no idea what you are talking about.
