Liveblogging New Hampshire over on the Election Watch

January 8, 2008

See my election blog for more news as it comes from the Northeastern Granite State. For now, Dixville Notch gave NO VOTES to Hillary Clinton. Along with Hart’s Location, the overall score on the Democratic side at this time is Obama 16, Clinton and Edwards tied on 3, Richardson 1. For the Republicans, Ron Paul is third with 4 (yes more than Clinton!) ahead of Romney 3, Giuliani 1 and Thompson 0. McCain 10 and Huckabee 5 complete the picture.

A blogger is dead

January 5, 2008

I did not intend to comment to make on this story.

Andy Olmsted, a blogger using the call sign G’Kar (a reference to Babylon 5) has been killed in Iraq. He left a posting to be published on the Obsidian Wings blog in the event of his death.

However, this seems a pretty obvious place and time to quote G’Kar’s great rival, Londo Mollari.

“When my time comes, I only hope I can face it with half the nobility that they showed at the end.”

Shambles for Republicans

January 5, 2008

I’ve posted my analysis of the Iowa caucus on the Election Watch. In brief, the Republican organization appears to have been found inferior to that of the Democrats, despite the fact that the latter had to handle over 100,000 more people wanting to vote, and a more complicated voting system.

If this is a sign of the Republicans’ grassroots organization in a battleground state, the year has started badly for them.

I also think Barak Obama looks like a credible opponent to the Hillary Clinton steamroller. Watch out for a surge in in the Illinois Senator’s rating.
