As Goes Dixville Notch: Obama, McCain Lead in N.H.

News you missed while (we hope) sleeping like a regular person:

Residents of two tiny towns stayed up late to give Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain early victories in the New Hampshire presidential primary.

In Hart's Location, Obama received 9 votes, Hillary Rodham Clinton 3 and John Edwards 1. On the Republican side, McCain received 6 votes, Mike Huckabee 5, Ron Paul 4 and Mitt Romney 1.

In Dixville Notch, Obama got 7 votes, Edwards 2 and Bill Richardson 1. Among Republicans, McCain got 4 votes, Romney 2 and Rudy Giuliani 1.

The New York Times/AP notes that the early voting follows pre-election polls. But the results may not mean much — Wesley Clark took almost half the Democratic ballots in the early voting back in 2004.
