NASHUA, N.H. - The Big Dog was back, but his bark was subdued. Former President Bill Clinton hit the campaign trail Monday on behalf of his wife, with a discursive speech that touched on the prosperity the country enjoyed during his presidency in the 1990s, Hillary Clinton's work as Arkansas' first lady, and reminiscences of falling in love with her at Yale Law School. He spoke in a raspy voice without the joy in rhetorical combat expected of one of the most gifted speakers of his generation - which, come to think of it, may have been the point.

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.

NASHUA, N.H. - Gov. Christie bet on New Hampshire and lost. Christie poured most of his campaign resources into the Granite State to try to emerge as the top governor in the presidential primary, to challenge Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida as the establishment candidate to beat. Christie finished a disappointing sixth out of the eight Republican candidates remaining in the race. He was unable to surge past former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who also made significant efforts in New Hampshire and may have benefited from Christie's takedown of Rubio in Saturday's debate.

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.

Anger is clearly the buzzword of the 2016 presidential campaign, especially on the GOP side of the aisle. Google the word with Republican and, like me, you might get more than 24 million hits (vs. 606,000 when matched with Democrat ). Exploring why people are "Mad as Hell" will be the focus of an event sponsored by the Inquirer on Wednesday night at the Independence Visitor Center. I'll have the privilege of speaking prior to a panel discussion that will be moderated by my colleagues John Baer and Dan Biddle and feature Daily News columnist Solomon Jones, Roll Call editor Melinda Henneberger, former Gov. Ed Rendell, and Farah Jimenez, president of the Philadelphia Education Fund.

PITTSBURGH - Donald Trump's response to the Orlando terrorist attack, filled with "conspiracy theories" and falsehoods, betrayed him as "totally unqualified" to be president and lead in dangerous times, an outraged Hillary Clinton said Tuesday. Meanwhile, in Washington, President Obama denounced Trump as having extreme views toward Muslims that the president said make the United States less safe and threaten the nation's core values. "We hear language that singles out immigrants and suggests entire religious communities are complicit in violence," Obama said after a meeting with national security advisers.

Consumer advocate Erin Brockovich and a New York-based law firm will investigate the drinking water contamination near former naval air bases outside Philadelphia, they said Tuesday. In Bucks and Montgomery Counties, 16 public drinking wells and dozens of private wells have been shut off since 2014 after having been found contaminated with chemicals known as PFOA and PFOS. Although officials say public water is now safe to drink, and private well owners are being moved onto the public supply, residents worry about the years they spent drinking the water - and many say the government and military have failed to give them all the answers they're seeking.

JUST THREE years ago, Philadelphia sports had as distinct a New England taste as a hot bowl of chowder. The hockey coach was from Massachusetts, the basketball coach was from Maine, and the new, exciting football coach with the new, exciting football scheme was a New Hampshire native. Two key pieces of the Sixers, Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel, hailed from the Bay State. More than half of Chip Kelly's staff came from his New England connections. Kelly's gone, Peter Laviolette is in Nashville.

Polls prior to the March 8 Michigan primary were showing Hillary Clinton with a double-digit lead over Bernie Sanders. However, as we now know, Sanders eked out a win over Clinton in the state. Professionals in the survey research community are fully aware of the challenges facing public opinion polling in general, and preelection polling in particular. It is no longer simply a matter of selecting a sample of respondents that is representative of the population and contacting them.

For all the attention and money lavished on Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina, they allocated about 2 percent of the pledged Democratic delegates and 5 percent of the Republican delegates who will pick the nominees of the two major parties. Now, things accelerate. In two days, Super Tuesday, more states vote (12) and more delegates are at stake (1,460 in both parties) than on any other single day in the presidential primary campaign. Afterward, it will be clear whether Hillary Clinton's Southern fire wall of African American voters stabilized her candidacy enough to make her, once again, the presumptive Democratic nominee in the face of a strong challenge from the left by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Since dropping out of the presidential race Feb. 10, Gov. Christie has emerged twice in New Jersey to make public remarks: during his budget address, and at a school ribbon-cutting in Newark. On Friday, he popped up in public again - but this time, he was back on the campaign trail, appearing in Texas to endorse Donald Trump. Christie - who didn't take questions from reporters at the Newark event earlier this week, and left before the ceremonial ribbon was cut - said in Fort Worth that he and Trump met Thursday, and "he said, 'How about coming out on the road to Texas with me?

The donors who bankrolled the super PAC backing Gov. Christie's now-finished presidential campaign included big financiers and business names: hedge-fund manager Steven Cohen, Home Depot cofounder Ken Langone, Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman. But wealthy local contributors also supported the super PAC, America Leads, which raised nearly $20 million before Christie exited the race two weeks ago. The super PAC's top donors in the Philadelphia area included Joseph Buckelew, chairman of the Conner Strong & Buckelew insurance firm, based in Marlton, who gave $150,000, and Vernon Hill, the former Commerce Bank chairman, who owns a Moorestown mansion and gave $100,000.
