explain why the race is far from over. >> reporter: good morning, as you mull over the results for iowa last night and look forward to what new hampshire will say next week, it's a good idea to keep a little prospective in mind. presidential races tend to be like football season. there's a lot of excitement when they begin, and if the team gets a few quick wins or losses, the fans get excited or despondent depending on their allegiance, but the super bowl champs are not decided in the fall or even the hot days. it's months and months of hard work and unexpected events, lucky and unlucky. it's very rare the early gains dictate the final outcome as we patriot fans learned this season to our dismay.
become a game player. the winners in iowa may be validated in new hampshire a week from tonight. the new englanders have been known to overturn iowa's verdicts because well, they are new englanders. long after iowa and new hampshire this race, more contested. it's been awhile since california mattered in june, but how much more evidence do you need that this is not your normal election year. we make you this promise, we will try to keep things in prospective, no matter how much pressure there is to lose it. you can always share your @keller @wbztv.com. here's prospective for you. if you're tired of the politics, here's consolation.

do you know the secret to a happy home in these modern times? it's a housewife who's in control of the finances. actually, any wife, husband, or human person can use progressive's name your price tool to take control of their budget. and while the men do the hard work of making money, she can get all the car insurance options her little heart desires. or the women might do the hard work of making money.

>> she said ms. g. has unofficially predicting the spring and winter for 8 years. last year she was expecting an early spring, and it didn't happen. >> that's okay because she said she will talk to her, have a conference and get back to us. she also mentioned she will have a light breakfast this morning of kale and carrots and we are like she is very healthy. >> wouldn't it be nice if someone prepped you for the day, and gave you a nice healthy breakfast before you hit the roads, maybe? >> we will get the mic situation there with danielle figured out, but now to traffic. >> reporter: there's slowdowns to the south of the city. the crash is down to route 3 northbound, just before the split, starting to backups there, and down to norwood on 95 northbound, slow traffic from exit 10 to coney street,
