Clinton and McCain win New Hampshire

The results are in. This time, the Republicans played out as expected, with McCain winning, followed by Romney in a strong second, Huckabee in a strong third, and Giuliani barely edging Paul for 4th.

The Democrats, on the other hand, confounded almost every poll and gave the win to Hilary Clinton, by a substantial (3%) though not overwhelming margin.

With both early states splitting their votes, it's going to be a long race.

Good coverage from:
Newsweek's Howard Fineman
Slate's John Dickerson (on Clinton, on McCain)
