Elizabeth Warren didn\'t waste time before conceding in New Hampshire  

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is ready to move on from New Hampshire.

Barely a quarter of the primary vote in New Hampshire had come in when Warren decided Tuesday night wasn't going her way. She gave a speech just before 8:30 p.m. in the state, acknowledging that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg seemed on the way to topping the night.

Warren started her concession speech with the hard truth: While the results were still coming in, "right now it is clear that Senator Sanders and Mayor Buttigieg had strong nights" in the first primary state. "I also want to congratulate my friend and colleague Amy Klobuchar for showing just how wrong the pundits can be when they count a woman out," Warren said, with Klobuchar running in third place as precincts continued to report.



Later in her speech, Warren condemned the party infighting that had come out during Friday night's Democratic primary debate. "We cannot afford to fall into factions," she said. "We win when we come together."

Warren finished in third place in Iowa's still-bungled caucuses and picked up eight delegates there. She's not projected to win any delegates in New Hampshire.

Fighting words last night at the MSNBC debate: "So, I'd like to talk about who we're running against, a billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians.' And, no, I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg," Warren said.

The debate was so vicious at times that it resembled a circular firing squad. So who emerged as the victor?

Oh, to revel in his deadly charisma, in his power to unify the nation and lead us into a better future. He was so magnetic I simply kept forgetting he was on the stage. He was so inarticulate, timid, easily flummoxed, and filled with an obvious contempt for the proceedings, it's no surprise so many (who may have undisclosed financial ties to the man and his company) have declared him the obvious winner.Was the audience...
