Reports Of Her Death Were Greatly, Tearfully Exaggerated

As every cliché-flinging sports commentator will tell ya, that's why they play the game on the field and not on paper. Clinton goes from burnt toast to a perfectly respectable Eggs Benedict.

And Richardson goes from 2% to 5%. At this rate, he'll be at 65% by the 20th primary. Perhaps there's a flaw in that logic. Meanwhile, we all move on to Michigan (and the exotic allure of "stripped delegates"), Nevada, and South Carolina. Wait, Bill Richardson, you're not moving on.

P.S.: So much attention to so few voters. Less than 200,000 folks in some distant cranny of the nation decide Democratic momentum throughout a country of 300,000,000. Just like the BCS bowl "system" we all know there's something wrong with Iowa/New Hampshire being so powerful, but it still hasn't changed. And yes, I'd still think that if Obama, Edwards, Richardson or even Dennis Kucinich had won tonight.
