New Hampshire Primary Live Blog/Open Thread
Posted February 9, 2016on:
Good afternoon and evening Widdershins!
Well it’s here: the first primary of the 2016 election cycle. Hillary got a win in the Iowa caucuses but how will she do now in New Hampshire? She was trailing in the polls prior to the election, but will she get a win in New Hampshire? After all, New Hampshire gave us The Comeback Kid. If she loses, but by a small margin, will that be enough for her supporters to consider it a win and then move on to South Carolina? At this point we simply don’t know.
So with that in mind we’ll use this post as a live blog on the primary and any other election related or other comments you wish to make. It’s an entirely open thread.
While we’re waiting on results, go check out this article. I thought it was amazing. Silly me, here I was thinking we were looking for the next leader of the free world when it really appears that for some folks (and they vote too!) they are just looking for the “cool one”. A presidential version of The Voice or American Idol perhaps? Who knew!!
Finally, today is Mardi Gras in New Orleans and also in other parts of Louisiana. Not everyone celebrates Mardi Gras by watching parades going down St. Charles Avenue in nola. Out in Mamou and Eunice, the middle of Cajun Country, Mardi Gras is an entirely different “animal” so to speak.
