Greg Dworkin helps us continue the NH parsing. Third is the new first. Kevin Drum worries that some Dem voters might be too convinced of inevitable victory. (But you didn’t think we were getting through primary season without hand-wringing, did you?) What do the journos and PoliSci types predict strategy-wise for the next stages of the race?

Utah gun enthusiasts seem to want protection from everything, both extra-legal and legal. Small government enthusiasts ride to the rescue, with the cudgel of government.
