Another Bad Night for Lamps

Hillary booed in New Hampshire.

By comparison Hillary was twice booed. The first time was when she said she has always and will continue to work for "change for you. The audience, particularly from Obama supporters (they were waving Obama signs) let out a noise that sounded like a thousand people collectively groaning.
Wow. It seems Obama's win has freed Democrats to vent their true emotions about Hillary Rodham Clinton. Maybe, just maybe, the media has misled us about how popular she is in her party.

Something tells me she might not win New Hampshire.

Related [Gabe]: Clinton's campaign spent the day in damage-control conference calls:

Outsiders continued to question whether Clinton should have run on a message of inevitability, and some said they had privately urged the campaign to take a more humble approach. "It's the inevitability thing that's hurt her so much. There's an arrogance that comes from the message that 'I'm inevitable,' " said a Clinton supporter and White House veteran, speaking on the condition of anonymity. [I can't imagine why...]

Just as the Clinton team sought to reassure staff members Thursday night, top campaign advisers -- including former president Bill Clinton -- convened a conference call Friday morning to soothe members of Congress who have endorsed her campaign.

The message to the lawmakers was that the campaign will tweak the message to focus on equal parts experience and how to effect change. "It requires experience to bring change," Howard Wolfson, Clinton's top communications adviser, told the lawmakers, according to one participant in the call.

But, according to two people who listened to the former president and the aides, the Clinton team is also trying to dramatically play down the importance of the caucuses' result, contending it was a home-turf win for Obama since he hails from a neighboring state.

A little more of this and she's going to start losing folks. I'm probably too gleeful about it than is warranted at this stage. But, really, it couldn't happen to a nicer ladywhatever.
