Wayne Lesperance: History will focus on the historic election of Barack Obama in 2008. But what many have forgotten is that it was Hillary Clinton who won the New Hampshire presidential primary that year. And by all accounts, Clinton is far and away the front runner among Democrats to win the first-in-the-nation primary and her party’s nomination. For now, at least, she leads the field of Democrats.
Phil Boynton: Will she or won’t she? If Clinton runs, then her only challenger is someone vying for VP or building his or her own brand for a future run. New Hampshire has always been Clinton Country since Bill Clinton’s “Comeback Kid” moment in ’92, so if she runs the primary is hers for the taking.
Peter Burling: If Hillary wants to run, New Hampshire will welcome her.
Dante Scala: If she runs (and is healthy), don’t kid yourself: There’s no point talking about any other Democrat.
Jess Steever: After her win the 2008 New Hampshire primary, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Clinton won over the Democrats again in 2016. She’s got the résumé and the name recognition – what will be interesting to see is whether the events in Benghazi will cost her some of her previous support.
