Obviously, polls predicting a big Obama win in NH were wrong. It’s going to be close, and it’s quite possibly going to be for Clinton. 25 I thought:

I wouldn’t be surprised if this inane “Clinton crying” pseudo-story winds up redounding to her benefit; it’s a stark reminder of how much sexist BS there is out there which, in turn, gets people back to thinking about how the first woman president in American history would be a pretty damn transformative event all on its own terms.

It seems to me that Hillary Clinton’s return to dominance among women bears that out. I don’t think pissing off Chris Matthews is a good enough reason to pull the lever for Clinton, but I can certainly understand the impulse.
