Obama Came, Saw and Conquered
Freshman Illinois Senator Barack Obama was in the state today. It appears that the media frenzy lived up to its reputation. The NH Dems passed out 150 media credentials for the event in Manchester and several hundred people attended Obama's book signing in Portsmouth. Obama told the Dems that "What we've come to be consumed by is 24-hour, slash-and-burn, negative ad, bickering, small-minded politics." Also, before signing books Obama said that all Americans should have health insurance and the United States should reduce its dependence on oil. All of this came on the news that Obama will decide after the Holidays, whether to enter the race.
