<p>Former <em>NBC Nightly News</em> anchor Tom Brokaw provided a history lesson on the New Hampshire primary during the 4:00 p.m. Eastern hour of MSNBC&rsquo;s political coverage and when describing the situation on the Democratic side in 1992, he claimed that then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton lost the Granite State<strong> &ldquo;amid rumors of womanizing&rdquo;</strong> despite the fact that such claims were proven true.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Brokaw opened by ruling that <strong>&ldquo;New Hampshire is a battleground of unpredictable successes and huge disappointments&rdquo;</strong> and started his lesson with 1968 and the <strong>&ldquo;strong second&rdquo; </strong>by ultra-liberal Eugene McCarthy and how it <strong>&ldquo;was enough to drive President Johnson from a second term.&rdquo;</strong></p>
