Ballot Bowl: McCain fighting in New Hampshire

Watch Obama react to Bhutto's death

Watch McCain on a recent campaign stop in Dover.

While most of the presidential field has spent the week barnstorming in Iowa, John McCain has been mostly on his own in New Hampshire. The Arizona senator – who won the state’s GOP primary back during his 2000 presidential run - is seeing some late momentum there, thanks in part to a near-sweep of New Hampshire newspaper endorsements. Watch him woo a Granite State crowd at a recent appearance in Dover.

    McCain can't bring positive change to this presidency.

    With a solid understanding of turnarounds, of improvement, of success in economics and leadership, Romney will not need support from other corrupt political dealmakers to win in NH. He will just need votes from citizens who want to improve our country, our standard of living and our image abroad!

    McCain has been in this game way too long to be objective anymore….he can't fix a system he has been a part of for so long!

    He is fighting a losing battle unless he starts working on a constitutional amendment to Federal constitution amending natural born clause or deleting it.

    I don't get it. What is the point of this picture? Obama is waiting on CNN's bus before an interview. Looks snowy outside. Hey CNN, it looks you have bus there. Am I missing something here?

    I'll pass on hearing anything more McCain, the war monger, has to say.

    I don't fall for the POW card or the "my friends" crap!

    He's another Bush.

    Another disaster for this country!

    I have raised 5 children to be strong Americans,to love our country and god. John Mccain is the leader we need. If everyone in America could talk to this man for a few short minutes as I had the honor to do, your vote would go to McCain

    CNN censored me for calling McCain a screwball.

    January 1, 2008 08:45 pm at 8:45 pm |

    McCain wanna with Huckabee and quite a tag team.

    I find them almost as amusing as Hillary Clinton.

    Nancy Polosi and Hillary in the White house break the rule of only one Cat in the

    Mitt Romney seems the only one passionate about America while the democrats are passionate about getting power and playing lip serice to problems.

    Hillary is the most rehearsed and theatrical, but doesn't fool me.

    How is Romney going to improve our country and standard of living? By shipping more US jobs abroad? Oh wait... that is how he is going to improve our image abroad!

    Let's get real, Romney is worried about Senator McCain's and Governor Huckabee's rise in the polls...otherwise, why attack them? Either he is worried or he is a bully by piling on and attacking two candidates that he is "not worried" about...take your pick

    As part of the WHALES (White Homosexual and Liberal Elites) we need to
    focus on gay rights here and educating kids this is normal and cool.
    Your stupid if you think gay is weird.
    Most gays are 55 years old over weight and can't impress women anymore so we have turned to each other and would welcome younger participants.

    I vote for Hillary, The repulicans are too traditional family when my partner and I would like to adopt a baby boy.

    If you can post "White & Gay 4 Hillary" then I dare you to post this:

    Congratulations CNN TV!!!

    By running the "I-Report hour long segment" 10 times in a weekend and New Year Eve, and New Year day. You have shown me the light of the day. Cable has repetition but you have crossed the LIMIT!

    I have discovered my options in FOX NEWS, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC, ABC News, and CBS News.

    Bye bye CNN I have been watching you and reading CNN.com for the past decade since you were the TURNER machine.

    People, pollsters, pundits give undue importance to the IOWA caucus anyway. Isn’t it time to break the back of this myth of IOWA’s importance? They haven’t picked a winner since 1976. I will wait for Super Tuesday on FOX NEWS though I know they are not FAIR & BALANCED! The most powerful name in NEWS?

    Go Hillary44 08! http://hillaryis44.org/

    As a Huck fan, and as with almost any Huck fan, Mean Mitt has assured we will not back him, but rather McCain, should it come to second choices in this season. It took buying off Drudge, Rush, FOX, The National Review, and The Weekly Standard, and still all Mean Mitt is barely alive in Iowa and New Hampshire, so he spends tons and tons lying about his colleagues and dividing the conservative base. When they reunite it will not be for that plastic phony.

    McCain is thought to be better than Romney at fighting terrorism. While most likely true, so what? Yeah America, terrorism is what's going to sink America. Give me a break. America's downfall will be due to its economy failing. Here's 1 Republican who'll be casting his vote based on who he thinks can do the most for America's economy, not who'll keep us in foreign wars for the next 4 years.

    When did contrasting public records during an election become negative, nasty, mean, etc? McCain, Huckabee, Obama and the Main Stream Media(including CNN) are attempting to defraud the American public by running away from their records and deviously stating "they are above such and won't play that game" Of course they refuse to debate or answer for their positions on important issues (immigration, taxes, etc.), because they believe in "government against the people". They are saying "I'm going to ignore the people's stated desires because I know what's best for you". This is frightening and if you check their records, it is exactly what McCain, Huckabee, Obama and the MSM are all guilty of.
