McCain & Clinton Win In New Hampshire

In a startling upset, Hillary Rodham Clinton has won New Hampshire 's Democratic primary, defeating Barack Obama and resurrecting her bid for White House. Clinton's victory caps a comeback from last week's third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.

It raises the possibility of a long battle for the party nomination between the most viable black candidate in history and the former first lady, who's seeking to become the first woman to occupy the Oval Office. After Iowa, Clinton and her aides seemed resigned to a second straight setback. But polling place interviews showed that female voters -- who deserted her last week -- were solidly in her New Hampshire column.

Clinton also is winning handily among registered Democrats. Obama led her by an even larger margin among independents, but he suffered from a falloff in turnout among young voters compared with Iowa.    

To the chants of "Mac is back," Arizona Senator John McCain has appeared before cheering supporters to claim victory in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary. Echoing comments he'd made earlier in an interview with The Associated Press, the 71-year-old McCain said he's past the age when he can claim the word "kid."

But tonight, he said, "We sure showed them what a comeback looks like." McCain's victory is a stunning comeback for a candidate who was all but written off last summer. The four-term senator says his strategy in New Hampshire was simply telling people what he believed, and what he felt was the truth. McCain said that tonight is "a first step toward repairing the broken politics of the past and restoring the trust of the American people in their government."

Looking forward to the next contest, McCain said: "We celebrate one victory tonight and leave for Michigan to win another."
