Well, this is a change from Obama's "Remember New Hampshire" line of yesterday.

Today, his campaign manager is addressing their opponent's chances with considerably less grace:
"They said that they would have huge gains on March 4," Plouffe said. "They’re going to fail and fail miserably. "
Really, now? That doesn't sound like the politics of positive thinking. David Plouffe should remember New Hampsire, too, lest the campaign find itself with nothing but a lost opportunity and a pair of britches several sizes too big. As we've seen all year, voters don't take kindly to too much arrogance from the front-runner.
