Drexel tried and tried, but the Dragons couldn't make it all the way back yesterday and dropped a 75-72 decision to New Hampshire. After winning its first-ever North Atlantic Conference game on Monday over Maine, Drexel (4-9 overall, 1-1 league) came out of the blocks slowly against New Hampshire (4-9, 3-1). "Coming in, we knew it was going to be difficult," Drexel coach Bill Herrion said. "We knew we would have to play very well to win. I was a little disappointed with the way we started.

Five fumble recoveries and a big day for Delaware all-America safety Warren McIntire helped the Blue Hens roll over New Hampshire, 44-22, yesterday in a Yankee Conference game. The fumble recoveries were a big part of Delaware's 28-0 first-half lead, which helped erase the sting of last week's 21-20 non-conference loss to West Chester. Defensively, McIntire recovered two fumbles, forced another, and broke up a pass. "We played much better (than last week) in every way," said Hens coach Tubby Raymond, whose club improved to 3-1 (3-0)

Now that the permafrost portion of the presidential primary season has ended, a few observations: Yes, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts has earned the title of Democratic "front-runner. " His wins in New Hampshire and Iowa demonstrate an ability to hang tough, especially considering his campaign staff was in shambles only recently. And no, the race isn't over. Several candidates have earned further consideration by voters in larger, more diverse states. (The closest our region will come to having a meaningful say in the contest is when Delaware holds its primary Tuesday.

NASHUA, N.H. - They came into New Hampshire with the most to lose, two candidates swamped in Iowa by a wave of political change. They had little time for course corrections. So Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Mitt Romney worked hard this weekend to be seen as "change agents," a challenging task since both are candidates of the political establishment. And they sought to call into question the change credentials of their principal opponents in tomorrow's first-in-the-nation primary.

Republicans, unified and disciplined on Capitol Hill, are about to break into open warfare over the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. Despite some high-profile withdrawals in recent weeks, the prospect of facing a damaged and vulnerable President Clinton is drawing a swarm of Republicans interested in challenging him in 1996. When New Hampshire Republicans gather this evening for a dinner to start the year leading to their primary, the first in the nation, nine potential candidates for the 1996 presidential nomination will line up to court their favor.

CLIVE, Iowa - Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he won't participate in the last GOP debate tonight before Monday's caucuses - but he's still likely to be center stage as other candidates make their closing arguments. "What does it say when Donald tells the men and women of Iowa, 'My time is more important than your time?' " Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said at a campaign rally Wednesday night. Trump says he won't debate because Fox News wouldn't comply with his demands to remove the journalist Megyn Kelly as a moderator.

ISSUE | WEATHERING THE STORM Christie should attend to Job 1 The pain on Gov. Christie's face as he was briefed on the blizzard Saturday was not the pain of empathy after hearing how the people in the Shore communities were suffering ("Back from blizzard, Christie slams rivals," Monday). You just know he was thinking, "Man, I wish I were back in New Hampshire. " Christie, who was an absentee governor for 261 partial or full days last year, needs to come to Cape May County to understand the depth of suffering in Shore communities, including Sea Isle City and the Wildwoods.

WASHINGTON - Republican anxiety is growing in Pennsylvania and corners of New Jersey over the possibility that Donald Trump or Ted Cruz will win the party's presidential nomination. Tough races loom down the ballot in both states - most prominently Republican Sen. Pat Toomey's reelection bid in Pennsylvania - and establishment figures worry that the bombastic New York billionaire or the acerbic Texas senator could make the GOP toxic to critical swing voters in both states. "Their presence at the top of the ticket would create serious problems," said former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, a Republican.

AMES, Iowa - As if the 2016 presidential campaign weren't operatic enough, now comes billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg threatening to run as an independent. His advisers say he is serious, motivated by the possibility that the major parties could nominate two people he considers extreme: real estate developer Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner, and socialist Bernie Sanders in the Democratic contest. Bloomberg has flirted with running for president several times since 2006 but has always pulled back from the brink.

Former Gov. Ed Rendell, a close friend of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, told the New York Times over the weekend that he might back his buddy if he runs for president as an independent. The caveat for Rendell, a longtime proponent of Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency: He would only back Bloomberg if U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont won the Democratic nomination. On Monday, Rendell walked that back a bit while speaking with The Inquirer. "I like Bernie Sanders.

HAMPTON FALLS, N.H. - Two days after forgoing the campaign trail for New Jersey ahead of a winter storm, Gov. Christie returned Sunday to New Hampshire - and wasted no time incorporating the blizzard into his leadership pitch. Contrasting his presence in New Jersey with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's skipping votes during the campaign, Christie said the storm demonstrated the duties governors face. "Your responsibility is to go when you are needed," Christie said during a town-hall meeting at a VFW hall in Portsmouth, N.H. Rubio's explanation for his missed budget vote, Christie said, would be like Christie's saying, "I really don't like being governor anymore, and I really prefer running for president.

Gov. Christie, campaigning in New Hampshire, decided Friday to return home ahead of the major snowstorm bearing down on the East Coast. "I want to make sure that the people of my state feel safe and secure," Christie told an audience in New Hampshire, adding that he had maintained contact with officials in Trenton over the last couple of days. On Thursday, the governor, who is seeking the GOP presidential nomination, had said he planned to stay in New Hampshire, which holds the first primary on Feb. 9. Christie's decision came under criticism from some Democrats and the news media.

Which explanation was worse: Doug Pederson's for his play-calling during the Chiefs' snail-paced final drive against the Patriots ("We did not want to give Tom Brady the ball back. ") or Chip Kelly's for the delay between being hired by the 49ers and having his introductory news conference ("I had no clothes. ")? In terms of actual football, Pederson's was more egregious - if you believe that it was really him and not Andy Reid that was orchestrating that series. The new Eagles coach, the theory goes, fell on the sword for his mentor and biggest advocate in replacing Kelly.

FOR THE THIRD straight presidential cycle, Michael Bloomberg's name is floating around the electosphere. The former three-term New York City mayor recently commissioned a poll to measure his viability. At a time in American politics when the unlikely seems possible, who's to say any White House bid is just plain crazy? Anyone a year ago think Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders could win early presidential contests? Anyone willing to bet the ranch on who takes office a year from now?
