DaveNet: Is Dean the Internet's Candidate?
Kerry wins, Dean second. Command Post has tons of data.
Political Wire: "Preliminary exit polls in New Hampshire show Kerry and Dean in a closer than expected battle for first place."
Bryan Bell: "I am constantly looking over my shoulder at Win-IE just to make sure the my sensible decisions are not being overturned by that freaking-lunatic of a browser."
No matter what happens as a result of New Hampshire, I sincerely doubt whether Al Gore's endorsement of Howard Dean will end up mattering. Yet it was just a little over a month ago that major press outlets were declaring the nomination process finished, with the poor voters playing no role at all. For example, USA Today said: "Gore's early endorsement drowns out voters' voices." It's like saying a baseball game is over before the first pitch. It's wrong on its face. Some games aren't over with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Second, when estimating the sheer idiocy of the press, there is no bottom. You can always go lower. Just look in the archive to see what people believed at any point in time. It seems at this point that the Dean endorsement was the last hurrah for Mr Gore. Bill Clinton, the wise odds-maker, could have flushed his career down the toilet by endorsing the other main candidate of late 2003, Wesley Clark.

Political Wire: "John Kerry has a 13 point lead over Howard Dean in the last Zogby tracking poll in New Hampshire. Just yesterday, Zogby had Dean only three points behind."
Union-Leader: "New Hampshire will probably not have the final word on who becomes the Democratic nominee."
Four years ago: "Welcome to Davos!"
Yesterday Howard Dean said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer that much of what CNN does is entertainment. Blitzer feigned surprise. If Blitzer were really on the ball he'd have turned it back at Dean and asked if his blog was anything more. He would have "got" the Good Doctor.
