Who actually won in New Hampshire...

On the Republican side, it was clearly Senator John McCain.

On the democrat side, it is not so clear.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, wife of the only US president to be disbarred while in office, won a narrow victory in the popular vote.

However, parties don't pick their nominee by popular vote. The eventual winner is the one with the most delegates.

According to CNN, Barak Obama won more delegates than HRC.

So, media hype aside, it was Obama who actually won in the delegate count. 12 to Clinton's 11.
