Mitt Romney has won New Hampshire after also coming out on top in Iowa. The real story is two-fold: Ron Paul is doing better than anyone anticipated and is not going away anytime soon, whether or not he has a real chance at the nomination. And Jon Huntsman, who went all out in N.H., failed in his quest. He is not going anywhere, and no "ticket to ride" spin is going to work after a third-place finish. Still to come: Dirty politics and more tempers flaring in South Carolina.
