The presidential campaign has moved on from New Hampshire, but it has left behind it deep fissures and feelings of resentment among local Democrats that some fear may linger all the way until November.--Alec MacGillis

Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are continuing their efforts to turn the burst of momentum each gained out of their respective early contest victories into cash. Media experts estimate it could cost $40 million to wage even a targeted television ad campaign in the nearly two dozen states with Feb. 5 primaries, and so both candidates are shifting into overdrive to raise the needed funds. --Matthew Mosk
John Edwards is the forgotten man in the race for the Democratic nomination, but not an inconsequential candidate.--Dan Balz

As the presidential candidates tumble all over each other offering economic plans, the two contenders who have offered populist messages aimed at the economically dislocated have not gotten as much traction as they might have expected.--Peter Baker
Was the New Hampshire primary rigged?
While former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is counting on his home state of Michigan to deliver him a key primary win next week, he faces fierce competition from both the left and the right in the form of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. --Juliet Eilperin
Since nearly eight in 10 white evangelicals voted for President Bush in 2004, Democrats have been plowing thought, money and time into changing the story line. They have faith advisers, faith forums and faith strategies that show there is such a thing as a progressive evangelical. So imagine their annoyance when exit polls in Iowa and New Hampshire asked only Republican voters if they consider themselves "born-again" or evangelical. --Michelle Boorstein and Jon Cohen
With the Nevada caucus nine days away, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton decided to make a quick campaign stop today in Las Vegas as a sign of her intention to make some showing in "Sin City", the epicenter of the next pivotal stage in her fight to win the Democratic nomination. It's unclear how much of a welcome wagon she'll be receiving. --Paul Kane

I guess it was premature to write those forward-looking analyses of President Obama's re-election strategy in 2012.--Joel Achenbach
Yesterday's Democratic result is sure to fuel debate among poll-watchers about the accuracy of polls in contests with African American candidates. --Jon Cohen
The first week of the new year threatened to write an unofficial end to the Bush-Clinton era of American politics and make a 46-year-old African American with the briefest of political biographies the man with the best opportunity to write the next chapter of political history. But by the narrowest of margins, Hillary Rodham Clinton turned back Barack Obama's bid to follow his Iowa caucus victory five days ago with what could have been a decisive win in the New Hampshire primary. As a result, both parties face further uncertainty about the identity of their eventual nominees. --David S. Broder
Sen. John McCain won in eight of the ten counties in New Hampshire, while Sen. Hillary Clinton's victory overall came from just five counties.

Near the bottom in New Hampshire's primary results and strapped for cash, Republican Fred Thompson's campaign is cutting staff salaries to free up resources for a last-ditch effort to revitalize his White House bid in South Carolina. The decision means Thompson will mostly forgo the next primary, scheduled in Michigan, on which rivals John McCain and Mitt Romney are already setting their sites. --John Solomon

Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has made a big deal about the fact that his campaign doesn't accept political donations from Washington lobbyists, and recently declared that "they won't run my White House, and they won't set the agenda in Washington." But that ban doesn't extend to seeking their endorsements, or their advice.--John Solomon
During an "Ask Mitt Anything" forum at the Derry-Salem Elks Club here, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney demurred when an audience member asked him whether he would hold up reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act on the grounds that it kept men from visiting their children.

Clinton won this scrappy corner of New Hampshire convincingly 16 years ago. But today, his popularity seemed a bit more tenuous. He showed up 90 minutes late and was greeted by a crowd of about 200 people who filled about half the available seats. A baby wailed during the first 10 minutes of his remarks, and local television crews packed up early, unable to shift their schedules to Clinton time. The former president was in a serious mood. "You can pick the president you want," he told the crowd. "But you can't be unaware that you are making a real choice here," he said. He described a political landscape that to him made little sense. --Shailagh Murray

Barack Obama is being joined on the campaign trail today in New Hampshire by Bill Bradley. The endorsement by the former New Jersey senator may verge on the superfluous for Obama, who with one day until the primary is now leading Hillary Clinton in the polls here and doing particularly well among the kind of independent voters who took a liking to Bradley in his 2000 challenge of Al Gore. Yet the pairing of the two men on the cusp of what may well be another big victory for Obama offers a moment of vindication for the many Obama supporters here who also backed Bradley in 2000. --Alec MacGillis
New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg rolled his independent non-campaign for president into Sooner country today, declaring once again "I'm not a candidate."--Keith B. Richburg

Jim Demers, a New Hampshire lobbyist and political strategist who is co-chairing Barack Obama's campaign here, was invoked by Hillary Clinton in last night's debate as undermining Obama's claim that he's running a campaign free of special interest influence.

Romney's high command may be right or wrong about Obama's prospects in N.H., but there is no question that they are all rooting for a big Obama victory over Hillary Clinton and John Edwards. The better Obama does, they believe, the more independents votes he will deny John McCain, the current GOP front-runner in New Hampshire. The fewer independents who vote in the Republican primary, the better Romney will do. --Dan Balz
