108. Except Kerry was always expected to win NH, anyway. The press still gave
more focus to Dean afterwards as if the real story was that dean burned himself out, and played that angle more than that Kerry earned his wins.

I feel the media deliberately took that angle to downplay Kerry's effective support from firefighters and the veterans and the college students who voted in greater numbers for Kerry. No doubt Rove played a part in the way the media perception was skewed. It made Dean supporters angry and it kep the focus off the real story of the firefighters and the veterans.
