NH Picks Presidents, Iowa Picks Corn

Todays is NH's Presidential Primary. If you don't come in 1st or 2nd, in NH, then forget it, you don't have a chance. NH has picked 10 eventual nominees (Iowa has only picked 9).

Fun Facts:

No Republican has become the nominee in the last 40 years without winning either Iowa or New Hampshire.

Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan all lost Iowa but went on to win the presidency.

Bill Clinton didn't win either Iowa or New Hampshire in 1992, but was still declared "The Comeback Kid" after his second-place finish in the New Hampshire.
 And lastly,
In the last 40 years, just one person has gone on to win the presidency after losing both Iowa and New Hampshire — Bill Clinton.

Clinton came in second in NH, see, you have to come in first or second. 

Mom can't WAIT for the phone to stop ringing.
