    Clinton, McCain emerge as comeback winners in New Hampshire primary



    WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Clinton pulled off an unexpected narrow victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday, dramatically rescuing her bid for the White House in a tense battle with Barack Obama.
    Clinton, who's fighting to become the first woman in the Oval Office, mounted a surprisingly strong showing after bracing for a second defeat following her devastating third-place showing in Iowa.

    Republican John McCain also nabbed a major comeback victory, putting him solidly back in his party's nomination race.
    While Obama, vying to make history as the first black U.S. president, scored big among independents and voters between 18 and 24, Clinton attracted lower-income voters and seniors and did best among voters citing the economy as their top concern.
    But a big factor for Clinton was women voters, who had gone over to Obama in large numbers in Iowa. Nearly half in New Hampshire were once again supporting her, while Obama got only a third.

    Well frankly other countries have the resources to change as well, they lack the ability or motivation to make the change. Most just consider it the status quo. Imagine where the US would be today had the original founding fathers not said "Enough is enough?"

    Ever wonder why people are always fleeing their country to come to the US. The are leaving everything they ever are for that same chance.
    Because they are too lazy to affect change in their own country. Millions of people come to the US illegally because it is easier to come here and drain our economy than it is to stay at your own country and change it.

    It can get worse. I am just not sure the President has that much power to sway it either way.
    He has some powers with the policies within his control. Executive orders can be pretty powerful thing. Bush created a whole new department of the Government using executive privelage.

    I'd turn this House in to Holland in every way, shape, and form faster than you could say "Windmills and Wooden Shoes".

    Legalized drugs not withstanding, I cannot fathom any other reason why we would want to be ANYTHING like any Country in Europe.

    Socialism is doomed to failure, there has not been one country on Earth that has survived as long as the US has under socialism.

    You're talking about a Country that was a major financier of the American Revolution; I do believe they have their sh*t together.

    I'm a conservative, but it is interesting how lately we've had bad presdients and keep seesawing between the 2 parties. 8 years of Clinton and all the corruption, and the country wants "change" to the other party. Then 8 years of Bush and the country wants "change" to the other party. After 8 years of Obama's Jimmy Carter like incompetence, the country will be ready to "change" back to the Republicans. The 2 party system has now in effect amounted to continual "changing" back and forth with the result that nothing gets better and the mess gets worse.

    Ronald Reagan - the last great president. Maybe forever.

    HAHAHAH over two hundred years ago they financed the American Revolution. I also seem to remember we returned that favor when we bailed out their asses in World War 2.

    Tell me, what about Holland today makes them so great other than legalized drugs and prostitution?

    Are they a super power? Do they manufacture a lot of goods that the world cannot do without?

    Are there people all over the world trying to immigrate to Holland? Do they have 18 million people in their country illegally?

    Yeah, they have their **** together alright, at least until the next Hitler comes walking over them again and they come screaming to the US and NATO allies to bail them out.

    I don't have any animosity towards Holland in particular, I think it is a much greater country than France for instance. I just don't think any country the size of the state of Maryland is a good candidate to compare Governments with.

    Two party, three party, twenty party, we will always have the problems we have had over the last twenty years. Anyone who has the arrogance that it takes to stand up in front of the American people as a whole and claim that they are the answer to all the questions they have ever asked about Government is doomed to fall short.

    Obama will be no different. He wrote more checks that his skinny *** can cash, and he will have to resort to breaking campaign promises or outright lying in order to do anything in Washington.

    The bigger problem than the two party system is the stupidity of the American voter.
