New Hampshire primary

Tuesday is the New Hampshire primary. It appears that Kerry will win again, but nothing is decided until the polls close. While New Hampshire certainly provides momentum, it is important to keep perspective on what it actually means -- or maybe more importantly, what the NH primary does not mean. Bill Clinton did not win New Hampshire in 1992, and George W. Bush did not win New Hampshire in 2000. The whole Democratic landscape will be much more clear after a few southern primaries are in the books.
