Mayberry Goes To McCain

Yesterday, Team McCain released a press release announcing its latest New Hampshire endorsement. Former Pataki supporter Matt Mayberry, has signed on with the McCain campaign. Here is the press release they released:

Team McCain Grows In New Hampshire
Matt Mayberry To Serve As Chair of Strafford County

ARLINGTON, VA - U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential exploratory committee today announced that Matt Mayberry will serve as chairman of the Arizona Senator's exploratory committee in Strafford County, New Hampshire. Mayberry will also join the New Hampshire steering committee.

Mayberry is a longtime New Hampshire activist and most recently assisted in statewide organizing for former Governor George Pataki. Previously, Mayberry served as chairman of Strafford County for Bush-Cheney and seacoast chairman of Senator Elizabeth Dole's presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire. He also served on Senator Lamar Alexander's campaign for President.

Mayberry is a veteran of the United States Air Force.

"I have great respect for the Senator and his service to our country," said Mayberry. "It is an honor to join John McCain's team."

"Matt Mayberry is a top-notch organizer and we are very fortunate to have him on our team in New Hampshire," said Senator John McCain.

It's Making The Rounds

The writers of the New Hampshire Business Review have a couple of things on their minds. They wonder:

-Which consultant dreamed up the idea of making sure Hillary Clinton had her own private-label bottled water?
-So if “An Inconvenient Truth” wins an Academy Award, does that mean Al Gore runs for president?
-Whatever happened to Wesley Clark’s campaign for president?
-It’s not too late for Virginia Sen. Jim Webb to visit New Hampshire, is it?

Nader: I'm In It...Only If Hillary Is

Former two-time presidential candidate, Ralph Nader, is considering another bid for the Oval Office. However, the cult icon said that he will run only if Hillary Clinton receives the Dems nomination. Nader said of Hillary, "She's just another bad version of Bill Clinton"

Dodd: Kids Dying, While We Debate

Yesterday, speaking at the Sulloway and Hollis law firm, Senator Chris Dodd told legislative leaders that he was " disgusted" by the Senate action on Iraq. Here are his comments, provided by The Union Leader:

"This was debating about debating. This was, in my view, the Senate and Congress at some of its worst in some ways. Both sides sort of enjoying this game at the expense of failing to come up with some clear direction out of the Congress. The problem is there are kids dying there and the Iraqis are suffering terribly. The politics worked pretty well for everybody, I suspect, but the problem was the people on the ground, going through a lot, have to sit there and wonder what's going on."

Sorry for not updating the Senator's schedule. Mr. Dodd did not attend the event in Keene.

Romney Raises Big Bucks

Mitt Romney capped his presidential announcement tour with a $1 million fundraiser in Beantown. Romney told the crowd, "People say to me mine is a very liberal state. I say that's true; it's a pretty liberal state. There is also a commonsense, don't-spend-my-money-foolishly strain in Massachusetts. And that's why Massachusetts voters voted for Ronald Reagan both times he ran for president." According to the Romney camp, the event drew 600-800 supporters and raised a cool million. However, the Boston Globe reported that "e-mails circulating" among Massachusetts Republicans showed that Romney supporters "were trying hard to get people to the event by inviting them and their guests for free."

Mass GOP Jumps To Rudy

Some of the most prominent Republicans in the Bay State are supporting either Rudy Giuliani or John McCain. Rudy's campaign released the following information:

"The team will be led by senior exploratory cmte adviser/ex-Gov. Paul Cellucci (R-MA), while state Sens. Richard Tisei, Bruce Tarr, and Michael Knapik will serve as co-chairs. Ex-MA GOP state cmte chair Brian Cresta will serve as eastern MA chair, and ex-state Senate Min. Leader Brian Lees will serve as western MA chair."

Supporters of Rudy argue that a conservative Republican, like Romney, would not benefit the GOP in Massachusetts. Also, under the Romney regime the GOP lost seats in the legislature.

International "That's What She Said" Day

Today is the day you have all been waiting for. Today is the International "That's What She Said" Day. "That's What She Said" is a saying that is used to highlight sexual innuendo. Here are some situations you can use it in:

-The mall, preferably by interjecting into a strangers conversation. For example:

Girl talking to best friend: "Have you ever had a toblerone chocolate bar?"
Girl's Best Friend: "Yes, it was the best I've ever had."
You (Loudly and from behind): "That's what she said!"

-Classy restaurants.
Waiter: "Be careful, sir, it's quite hot."
You (making determined eye contact): "That's what she said."

If you still don't understand, check out this YouTube Video:

Remember to be clever!!

Swett, Reardon Join Clinton Team

Mr. John DiStaso of The Union Leader is reporting that the Clinton team has picked up a couple of more endorsements. Here is his report:

"Hillary Clinton's campaign picked up significant local support his week with endorsements by former U.S. Rep. Dick Swett and veteran strategist Judy Reardon.

Swett's and his wife, Katrina, are long-time friends of the Clintons. The former President appointed him ambassador to Denmark in 1998.

Katrina Swett, who intends to run for the U.S. Senate in 2008, is staying out of the endorsement game, at least for now, her husband said.

Dick said he is "eager to work with the Clinton campaign on issues relating to our energy consumption" and how it relates to national security, as he did with his '04 Presidential pick, Joe Lieberman.

Reardon, deputy chief of staff for former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, will keep her position at The Dupont Group lobbying firm and won't hold an official title in the campaign. But she said she'd give "as much help as I possibly can."

Reardon was John Kerry's deputy campaign director for northern New England in 2004. She said she decided some time ago that if Kerry decided not to run, she'd back Clinton."

McCain and Rudy Hiring

The McCain and Rudy presidential campaigns are slowly putting their staffs together. Matt Mayberry, who was spearheading Pataki's campaign, has jumped onto the McCain campaign. While, Rudy's campaign is working hard to sign up Debra Vander Beek. Ms. Vander Beek is Bradleys former chief of staff. David Tille, also a former Bradley staffer, is the field director for Team Rudy.

Clinton: Let's Pick-Up, Where We Left Off

Hillary Clinton will be in the state this Saturday, February 17th. Campaign field director Karen Hicks told The Union Leader that Senator Clinton will hold a house party in Portsmouth in the morning. In the afternoon, Clinton will attend a “conversation” at Dover High School. The event will be taking place at 2:30 p.m. Clinton's visit to the state last weekend, was marked with questions on her Iraq vote. Also, this weekend Bill Richardson, Chris Dodd and Dennis Kucinich will be paying in the state. Bets are that Clinton will once again soak-up all the media attention.

RSVPs are "encouraged" at

Update: Dodd Cancels Nashua Event

CT Senator Chris Dodd has cancelled his event tomorrow morning in Nashua. This is a result of the snow storm. However, the rest of the Senator's schedule remains intact.

Vice-President Judd Gregg??

Today, Roll Call reported the names of several possible vice-presidential candidates. All the of the names they suggested are current United States Senators. Here are the names the article suggests:

"Beyond the "obvious selections" of HRC, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE), other possible Dem Veeps include: Sens. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Jack Reed (D-RI), Jim Webb (D-VA), Ken Salazar (D-AZ) and Blanche Lincoln (D-AR). On the GOP side, possible veeps include: Sens. John Thune (R-SD), Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Judd Gregg (R-NH) and David Vitter (R-LA)."

Would Judd leave the Senate? Perhaps more importantly, would Joel Maiola (Gregg's Chief of Staff) allow the move? Who would Lynch appoint to fill Gregg's seat? Let the speculation begin!!!

Will Gore Jump Into The Race??

The New York Observer is reporting that associates to former Vice President Al Gore are being told "Mr. Gore will consider entering the race — if an opening presents itself — in September." The once presidential contender, turned SNL host, turned Oscar nominee, beliefs he can delay entering the race because "(w)ith his Oscar and Nobel Prize nominations, upcoming Congressional testimony on global warming, and an international day of concerts to promote climate-change awareness that he's organizing for early July, Mr. Gore figures to receive more prominent news coverage in the months ahead than many of the announced candidates." On a side note, perhaps in a sign of irony, congressional hearings on global warming was cancelled...due to snow.

Streeter Supports McCain

John McCain's juggernaut has picked up yet another endorsement. Nashua Mayor Bernard Streeter announced his intent to support Senator John McCain, if he decides to run. Streeter is currently serving in his eighth year as Mayor of Nashua.

Romney To Buy NH Ads

The Hotline's Marc Ambinder is reporting that Mitt Romney's campaign is contemplating buying air time, in the state. Here is Ambinder's report:

"Ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney's media team is exploring the cost of buying early television ads in Iowa and New Hampshire, a Romney aide confirmed today.

The aide, speaking on the condition of anonymity, would not say when Romney's campaign intended to run ads, only that the campaign had inquired about the available time and rough cost of ads in both states. "

Franklin Pierce College Happenings

Here are some events that Franklin Pierce College will be hosting next week. Ohio Democrat Dennis Kucinich will speak to students and visitors on Tuesday the 20th. That morning, California Republican Duncan Hunter will conduct a Radio Interview on the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication's Radio Station at 9 am. For more information contact Steve Dodrill. Mr. Dodrill is the News Director of the Pierce Media Group at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire.

Hillary and Town Hall Meetings

By way of Dante "Man, Myth, Legend" Scala:

"Jon Chait of The New Republic (subscriber only), via Kausfiles, argues that on the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton will suffer in comparison to superior orators Barack Obama and John Edwards:

The question is: Which candidate is more likely to benefit from endless hours of speechifying, hand-shaking, and town hall meetings? There's no reason to think the answer will be Clinton. While she may be just as smart as--and more experienced than--Edwards and Obama, she is an average orator, while Edwards is a very good one and Obama is a brilliant one. Having seen all three give speeches, it's hard for me to imagine how a prolonged side-by-side comparison will move voters into Clinton's camp. And, as the best-known of the leading candidates, she'll have the hardest time making a strong new impression anyway.

Clinton may never match Obama's 2004 speech to the Democratic National Convention. But "speechifying" is one thing. Shaking hands and answering questions at town meetings in New Hampshire is quite another.

Back in the 2000 primary season, Al Gore delivered few stemwinders. But by the time New Hampshire voters went to the polls, he had gotten the town meeting down pat (warning: shameless link to book, now available for less than three dollars on Amazon!). As activist Bill Shaheen said, it's not all that difficult: "all you have to do is sit there and listen to their questions and answer them." If Gore could manage that, why can't Clinton, as long as she's willing to do so?"

Here is his site:

Obama Fills UNH Gym With Anti-War Message

Barack Obama was at UNH-Durham the other day. James Pindell wrote that, "Obama stood in the middle of a packed gymnasium at the University of New Hampshire of about 2,300 people. In December, he spoke at a rally of 1,500 people in Manchester. Over the weekend, Senator Hillary Clinton’s largest audience was 1,500 at Concord High School." The Obama event also had about 800 people on a waiting list. The Illinois Senator also told the dominately college crowd that, "We are now in the midst of a war that never should have been authorized, never should have been wage. Unless we bring that war to a close, we cannot deal with those other problems."

***The Photo is ©Chris Fitzgerald/*** Obama is staring into the crowd, looking at a questioner.

Romney Announces

Today Mitt Romney announces his presidential candidacy in Dearborn, Michigan. Here are some excerpts from this speech:

How will this new American dream be built? Our hopes and dreams will inspire us, for we are an optimistic people. But hope alone is just crossing fingers, when what we need is industrious hands. It is time for hope and action. It is time to do, as well as to dream!

"As we look around us in this museum, we see the evidence of American innovation – airplanes, automobiles, appliances. But these are not America 's greatest innovation. America 's greatest innovation is freedom. Without freedom, we have nothing. With freedom, nothing can hold us back.

"Freedom has made the American dream possible. Freedom will make the new American dream possible. And with the work, sacrifice, and greatness of spirit of the American people, freedom has made America – and will keep America – the greatest nation on earth. God bless America ."

The Mittster will be in Hopkinton tomorrow. However, the event might be canceled, due to the expected snow storm. Stay tuned for updates.

Hillary: Rove Fears Me

At a house party in Nashua Senator Clinton remarked that the GOP fears Hillary. What is interesting is that the Senator used the term "Bill and I." I'm not sure if Mrs. Clinton has ever said anything like this before. Kudos, to Ben Smith for the pick-up. In any case here is the report from The Politico:

"Hillary: Rove Fears Me

The Politico's Carrie Budoff sends in Hillary's remark from a Nashua house party:

“I know what Gingrich tells people privately, I know what Delay tells people privately, I know what Karl Rove tells people privately,” she said. “I’m the one person they are most afraid of. Bill and I have beaten them before and we will again.”

What Was That Sticker?

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton was seen wearing a giant sticker. What was that sticker? The sticker was from the group "Victory New Hampshire." The group is dedicated to preserving New Hampshire's role has the first primary. Go to the link below, to see pictures of Hillary wearing the sticker and video of her voicing her support for the primary.

Clinton Meets Roger Tilton in Berlin

Before arriving in Concord, Hillary Clinton visited Berlin. In Berlin the New York Senator spoke before 500 people at the Berlin City Hall. The Clinton Berlin might be known has her "Roger Tilton moment." James Pindell of the Boston Globe has more:

Roger Tilton, a certified financial planner from Nashua, asked her “if once and for all” she would admit that the vote [on Iraq] was a mistake. Since then, former Senator John Edwards and Senator John Kerry have said it was a mistake.

Clinton repeated her often-used phrase that “if I were president, there never would have been a vote.” But that was not enough for Tilton.

“She has plenty of great things to say that I agree with, but I cannot even listen to them until I hear her say flat out it was a mistake,” Tilton told reporters afterward."

Also, while crossing the street Clinton greeted a young girl who was holding a cell phone. The girl, with Hillary standing there, called her mother to say that she was speaking with Hillary Clinton. Perhaps the mother didn't believe it, because Hillary spoke into the phone and said, "Hi, this is Hillary Clinton."

Inside City Hall, when Hillary was introduced to the crowd, a technician was placing a mic on her. She said to the crowd, "I'm not turned on yet." At the next event in Concord, the same thing happened.
So far the major press story from the Clinton trip has been the questions she has received about her Iraq stance.
