Most Clinton New Hampshire offices re-open

(CNN)–Fifteen New Hampshire Hillary Clinton campaign offices have re-opened, her campaign announced Sunday. The office in Rochester, which was the scene of a hostage standoff on Friday that ended peacefully, will remain closed until further notice from the local authorities the campaign said.

"It's back to business as usual and electing Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States," said Nick Clemons, the campaign's State Director said in a press release on Sunday. "I couldn’t be prouder of our outstanding team and the tremendous dedication they showed during the last several days. The New Hampshire for Hillary campaign is grateful for the efforts of local law enforcement and for the outpouring of support we have received from people across the country."

The New York senator was scheduled to campaign in Iowa on Sunday.

    Clinton is going to have a lot of work to do in New Hampshire. The most recent poll released yesterday has her slipping to a single-digits lead for the first time since JULY!

    I don't think it's staged -.-. Why would the guy risk going to jail for that? That's a terrible thing to say when someone was held hostage

    Hey Nameless, yesterday you lived in Iowa. Right-wing trickery is afoot.

    Wow, Nick Clemons talks like the nomination has already been decided, and that this incident with this poor soul and his schizoid actions were something that shook the rest of the English speaking world. Thank God he didn't go and talk about how well Hillary 'handled' the situation!

    Oh, just single digit lead now. But, she's the one with work to do.

    Lets all wait a few days or weeks and find out if this was staged before we bash her, ok ? If this incident was staged its the end of the road for her , if it wasn't its an advertisement for her at best. not worth running off at the mouth over her for either side to be the first to bash her anyway, its all been said before

    Notice that these three comments pretty much sound the same, have very similar use of tone and voice, and punctuation. Makes me wonder if the same person didn't write all of these. Keep in mind that they were posted minutes apart and all three have something negative to say about Sen. Clinton. Talk about turning the page.

    Meanwhile, Obama got some great news today:

    (1) Rasmussen's latest general election poll has him running strong.

    (2) The Des Moines Register poll of Iowa has him ahead of Clinton (for the third time in a week!)

    (3) The Des Moines Mayor just announced its endorsement of Obama, a potentially big development.

    If staged, why don't you ask yourself 'staged by whom?' Why should Hillary do it? And would it be surprising to have the guy saying she did it just for him to get publicity or big money from Republicans or others? Any scenario is plausible, lets speculate.

    Its amazing how you keep accusing Hillary for all non-sense and bad thoughts that build up in your minds. So much negative energy down there in the US! You should check with your doctor, maybe you can get help.. oh yes, I forgot, you are Americans, you don't have health care plans.. Look at the effects!!

    I strongly believe it was staged and most N.H people are not happy with this. They don't like the media in their backyard reporting crime. Most of the people here I tell you are upset about the whole situation and they don't want someone associated with crime. Let's wait see how it will be for her......

    It is really scary to think that our country has all these women haters in closets. You know the ones to pretend that we have equal rights and blah blah blah.... but some of you men are really afraid of Ms. Clinton and women like her. Don't be afraid – just be opened minded enough to see that she is clearly by far the best choice.

    People actually, in all seriousness, think this incident was staged?

    Sounds like some of you may want to speak to a doctor about the paranoid delusions and repetitive thoughts of Mrs. Clinton you've been having. It's not normal.

    I don't know if this is staged or not, but a while back, when there's a veteran walked in for help with his problem, the Clinton campaign closed the down on him and the Obama campaign at least sit down and listened to him. Another reason why I have no faith in Hillary while I have more faith in Obama. Hillary tried to avoid the veteran, while Obama sat down and listened.

    If Obama really met this veteran, don't you honestly think we would have lots of media coverage of the story? Lets be serious, Obama campaign doesn't waste any chance to get exposure. Be serious guys, this is politics. Don't believe people just for what they say, or for rumours and gossip. Some have so harsh words about Clintons, I cannot understand how you can talk like that about your former President. All I remember is that Bill Clinton had 70% approval rate even when the Congress fought to impeach him. Where are those 70% Americans? Have they changed that much?

    Whether this was a "staged" incident or not is up to speculation. The incident will be investigated and the people cannot expect a true account of what really happened from local authorities. In the end, it was all resolved peacefully without un-due harm to politicians but more importantly innocent people. As far as slanderous remarks based towards Hillary, her opponents and the current President; Let us not forget how her husband, despite his 70% approval rate, let America down to tend to his own impeachment trial while the USS Cole was bombed and many sailors lost their lives due to what is now globally recognized as a terrorist attack. My question is, in a time when terrorism is rampant in many different countries, can we expect the same selfishness from Hillary? Obviously this has helped her gain publicity despite how it was handled.

    I hate Clinton's guts and even with that, could never envision her campaign doing something like this.

    With no proof AT ALL, that is just totally crazy talk, and it does nothing to further the cause of defeating her.

    And Olivia, my hate for her has NOTHING to do with her gender, it is based on her 35 years of lies, deceit, back room deals and dirty politics.

    I respect Condi, Kerry Healey, Liz Dole, Michelle Obama and other strong and smart women. Just not this person.

    Keep playing the gender card as Hillary does, enjoy the kool-aid.

    We need to ask why many think it was staged. In the 1980 campaign, a Reagan campaign office in Chicago was involved in a very similar incident. At the time, there was no speculation that it was staged. It begs the question, again, why do people think this was staged? Perhaps it has something to do with a history of suspicious shenanigans. If the level of trust for this candidate is such that the first thing that enters so many people's minds is whether or not it was staged the candidate definitely has problems.

    If the history of shady dealings and bizarre circumstances that surround this candidate didn't exist, most would just see this as some crazy guy looking for attention. But, since that history is there we have this suspicion.
