Another 0.25%

No, not interest rates but the approximate additional percentage of the electorate that cast their votes in New Hampshire today.

Hillary stole Obama's crown and perhaps the largest state in the union will, for the first time since this ridiculous primary system was installed decades ago, have an impact in deciding our nominee.

It doesn't mean the outcome will be any better (I don't imagine the coverage will change. Edwards will remain invisible, Hillary's just a girl so she can be attacked from 360° and Obama gets a free ride) but at least it will be decided by a larger portion of the voting population and a most definitely more representative cross-section.

Once again, the ratio of Dems/Rep was reported about 2:1. So the message to the Republican candidates is that your peops are not that into you.
