(This post was formally titled: “Obama Will Win New Hampshire by 13 Points”).
In two New Hampshire polls that were released Sunday, January 6th, Barack Obama had a 10 point lead and 12 point lead over Hillary Clinton.

And the two men are both considered agents of hope and
change and the New generation.
With Obama’s solid New Hampshire win, and Hillary’s camp very shaken and in chaos, Obama will win the nomination. He’ll beat McCain, who is old generation (McCain will have narrowly defeated Huc). And Obama will be
