    Jeb Bush's stump speech started to take on a defensive, pleading tone in the days following his sixth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses last week. I know I've been written off, I know the end is near, I know all that stuff," the onetime overwhelming favorite for the Republican presidential nomination told a couple of hundred people in a school cafeteria in Concord. "You know what gives me confidence? New Hampshire. ... I trust you all. I've shown my heart. I've shown the depth of knowledge." Political reporters have been asking him about quitting the race and how his campaign...

    About to begin her word-asociation game about the other candidates with Donald Trump, Mika Brzezinski said "I'm scared to do this." Prescient on Mika's part. Because although Trump had been in a relatively light-hearted mood during his Morning Joe appearance today, things suddenly got deadly serious. When it came time to give his word on Hillary, and despite having been reminded that she had attended his wedding, Trump said: "in a certain way evil." Making clear it was no slip of the tongue, Trump repeated himself: "in a certain way, evil." Mika's "whoah!" in response probably spoke for a lot...

    The results are in. Or, at least, the first results from the tiny New Hampshire towns - Dixville Notch, Millsfield and Hart's Location - that practice the time-honored tradition of voting at midnight to claim the distinction of casting the election's first primary ballots. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont emerged as the Democrats' big winner of the wee hours on Tuesday, with 17 votes in total, while Hillary Clinton received nine. On the Republican side, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Donald J. Trump and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio each had nine votes. Oh, and in Hart's Location, a Democrat...

    Benning Wentworth is not a name you'll run across in New Hampshire primary coverage. But he arguably did as much as anyone else to establish the political culture -- or cultures -- of America's first-in-the-nation primary state. Wentworth was governor of New Hampshire from 1741 to 1766, the longest-serving colonial governor, and with his father he successfully lobbied to make New Hampshire, surrounded by Massachusetts and its Maine territory, a separate colony. This insulated New Hampshire's religiously diverse seacoast and backwoods from Massachusetts' Puritan busybodies -- and from its customs and tax collectors. Wentworth himself was not much at obeying...

There is a 10% viability threshold for receiving delegates, which means that Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Chris Christie will probably miss out on taking any home.

That was before New Jersey Governor Chris Christie banged the Florida Senator up pretty good in Saturday's Republican debate. Brown called Rubio "brilliant," adding that he considered him a good friend, but felt the cage match with Christie really hurt him. Asked about Trump's "ground game," Brown said he was confident the businessman has a good one...

    Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you. Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement. Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on...

At the time, Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, huffed: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics." She naturally followed that statement with an intense political attack on Palin and GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Now that Democrat Hillary...

  • Gloria Steinem eviscerates Carly Fiorina with scathing post on Facebook

    The surging candidates remarks on Planned Parenthood drew Steinems ire. Feminist icon Gloria Steinem blasted Carly Fiorina in a post on her Facebook page, saying the presidential hopefuls commentary on Planned Parenthood at the Republican debate last week was a 100 percent lie. I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes, Fiorina railed during the debate. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. Fiorina was referring to a series of sting videos produced by the Center for Medical...

    Feminist Gloria Steinem, who never seems to have anything nice to say about men, offered her analysis as to why men criticize Hillary Clinton in an interview with ABC News' Cokie Roberts: "I think actually that looking at a powerful woman made them feel -- they had been regressed to childhood, because the last time they saw a really powerful woman, they were 8. So they behaved like 8," she said. ABC tried to offer some context as a means of explaining her strange comments, such as the fact that she grew up in an era where women often...

  • Ted Cruz's Latest Dirty Trick Is Almost Too Much To Be Believed

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is out with a deceptive new mailer that masquerades as official government business and promises people there's a "check enclosed" when it's actually asking for money instead. A New Jersey resident sent The Huffington Post the latest piece of mail he received from Cruz's campaign. The envelope appears to have come from Cruz's Senate office and has his name printed the same way it often is for Senate business. In small type the mailer clarifies that it is for "personal" matters and was not sent at taxpayers' expense. It also promises a check...

    Politics is a full-contact sport, but it’s not OK to hit below the belt. Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio spent last week blaming frontrunner Sen. Ted Cruz for a problem that originated from Team Carson’s own disorganization—even after media records and Iowa exit poll data cleared Cruz. Before you vote in your primary, you deserve the truth...

    Political prognostication is an uncertain art, never more so than in the New Hampshire primaries of 2016. On the eve of the elections, equipped as I am with all the most scientific polling and profoundest opinions of the professional pundits, I still wouldn't place a bet on the electoral outcome of the race. On other hand, I'd be willing to put a few dollars on the proposition that, when the history of the 2016 presidential race is written, the past week in New Hampshire will go down as the place where the Clinton campaign lost its way. Bernie Sanders didn't...
