Ron Paul's New Hampshire Defeat

Dave Weigel fights back the tears. If Paul cannot win or even beat Giuliani in New Hampshire, his most promising state, then what hope does he have? His ads sucked. Bottom line:

Paul simply underperformed. The problems were threefold: a late start in actual campaigning, a strange ad campaign, and a waste of energy among novice volunteers who should have been getting out the vote.

But the freedom movement he helped galvanize is much more than one man. And if we enter a second Clinton era, we will need it as much as ever.
