Sosnik to Advise Clinton Campaign

Veteran Democratic operative Doug Sosnik will serve as an adviser to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's (N.Y.) presidential effort, although he will not join the campaign in a formal capacity, he confirmed to The Fix tonight.

"They asked me and I have agreed to an informal role," Sosnik said.

Sosnik has a long history with the Clintons. He served as White House political director during the 1996 reelection campaign of former President Bill Clinton and went on to serve as a political and policy adviser during the Clinton's second presidential term.

Sosnik, along with former Hillary Clinton chief of staff Maggie Williams, are expected to be part of a widened group of senior advisers to the campaign.

Early exit polling does not take in to account absentee ballots. We have made a huge mistake in this country by allowing absentee voting to become the norm in many jurisdictions. People vote 3 or 4 weeks before the candidates have had a chance to make their case on a local level. In states like Iowa and NH, politics is done on a face-to-face basis, and happens in the one or two weeks prior to the caucus/election. All of those absentee voters dropped their ballots in the mail a week or so before the candidates showed up on the doorstep. Not good politics, and especially not good for those candidates who are fighting against the "National Media Presence" of established, funded and well-organized candidates. Semper Fi

My first conclusion is that although the country and the media are marching towards Obama, the good people of N.H. were not so moved by him.

What were those pollsters at polling up there, the squirrels?

Let's add more to the mystery:

"Mrs. Clinton said she expected to lose the New Hampshire primary, and even before the polls closed pledged to fight on to the next round of early-voting states."-NYTimes

Also, Edwards needs to hang it up and endorse Obama. Within the next 24 hours.

There's only about 100k total D votes in so far, and there should be somewhere around 250-270 total. It's disheartening to see Team Party Like It's 1992 doing so well, but it's still early.

rfpiktor, earlier in the day, folks were speculating that indies voting D would help BHO and possibly hurt McC.

Perhaps indies voting R, for McC, MH, and RP, have hurt BHO.

What gives?:

Early exit polling of Republicans showed McCain with 35 percent compared to 30 percent for Mitt Romney and 13 percent for Mike Huckabee. Of those voting in the Democratic primary, 39 percent were going for Obama, while 34 percent were going for Hillary Clinton and John Edwards was at 18 percent.
