Voted in the New Hampshire Primary for John Edwards

Tuesday, January 27th, 2004



src="http://www.nozell.com/marc/blog/data/20040127-thumb_IM000882.jpg">

On the way to drop the girls off at the YMCA, I stopped in and voted.
For a grand total of 5 minutes I was a registered Democrat. With the
Democratic ballot, the clerk handed me a ‘change of party affiliation’
form to change back to undeclared after voting.

On the way out there were two organizations taking polls. More like
offering them, since the people running them were just standing there
and we had to ask to take the survey. One was from the LA Times and
had a middle/left of center slant and had a number of ‘pick 3 of 12′
of most important issues. The other was by CNN/Fox/etc which came in
two versions, both were definitely right of center. On Wendy’s they
asked if the “Dean Scream” had any impact on voting. Mine asked a if
‘electablity’ was a factor. Outside the school, there were two Dean
people asking if they their campaign had ever contacted us and if so
asked to remove us from their list. Clearly they are going to be
calling everyone on their list who hasn’t yet voted.

Man, look
at all the other ‘minor’ candidates on the ballot.

Complete list of candidates on the NH Democratic Primary ballot:

* Katherine Bateman (Chicago, IL)
* Carol Moseley Braun (Chicago, IL)
* Harry W. Braun III (Phoenix, AZ)
* Willie Felix Carter (Fort Worth, TX)
* Wesley K. Clark (Little Rock, AK)
* “Randy” Crow (Wilmington, NC)
* Howard Dean (Burlington, VT)
* Gerry Dokka (Atlanta, GA)
* John Edwards (Raleigh, NC)
* “Dick” Gephardt (St. Louis, MO)
* Mildred Glover (Baltimore, MD)
* Vincent S. Hamm (Golden, CO)
* John F. Kerry (Boston, MA)
* Caroline Pettinato Killeen (Scranton, PA)
* Dennis J. Kucinich (Cleveland, OH)
* Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr (Round Hill, VA) — he even has signs in Merrimack
* R. Randy Lee (New York, NY)
* “Joe” Lieberman (New Haven, CT)
* Robert H. Linnell (Lebanon, NH)
* Edward Thomas O’Donnell, Jr (Lebanon, NH)
* Fern Penna (Kingston, NY)
* “Al” Sharpton (Brooklyn, NY)
* Leonard Dennis Talbow (Scottsdale, AZ)

John Edwards Town Hall meeting at Nashua’s Fairgrounds Junior High

Monday, January 26th, 2004

Sunday we went to the John Edwards’ Town Hall meeting and got on live
national TV (C-SPAN, but in a good
way).

Since
Wendy is now an NH Edwards delegate for the 1st congressional
district
, we feel obligated to show up for the events in the area.
It was scheduled for noon down in Nashua, but we left Merrimack at 11am to get
a good seat — we knew it was going to be mobbed
after the huge crowd we saw Saturday night at the bowling alley.

We got there about 20 after and Wendy and Trevor stood by the
gymnasium handing out the remaining campaign literature we had at home
– it will be useless after Tuesday. I headed into with the rest of
the kids and found some seats on the side in the middle. While we
waited a CNNreporter was making the
rounds taking notes. She was interested to know if I had decided
(yes, for Edwards), were
going to vote (of course), and when decided. I told her that we say
Kerry a few weeks ago and he
said to vote for him and not vote to send a message. Wendy and I
seriously talked about it quite a bit and decided
now was the time to vote for who we wanted and not just who may
beat Bush. The reporter also
was curious if there was anything that turned us off of href="http://www.johnkerry.com">Kerry or href="http://www.deanforamerica.com">Dean. It isn’t really a case
of don’t like but like better. I explictly told her that the Dean
Scream had no impact and made us see him as more human and passionate.

After that one of the Edwards advance team asked if the kids and I
would like to stand on stage. Sure! Later Wendy and Trevor (with
crutches) found us and came up to. They were trying to get a variety
of people up there — a number of folks
from NH
, but also people that came just to support Edwards. If
you see the streaming video ( href="rtsp://video.c-span.org/project/c04/c04012504_edwards.rm">
rtsp://video.c-span.org/project/c04/c04012504_edwards.rm) you see
most of the family about from about 41 minutes in through the end. We
are on the right side of the stage and you’ll see href="http://www.nozell.com/griffin">Griffin getting Edwards to
sign the girl’s “Go, John, Go!” signs. Past meetings were pretty low
key — just a local Democrat doing the introduction, but now they have
a staffer to warm up the crowd (“Who is from NJ? Who is from NC?”
“Have you heard this song E-D-W-A-R-D-S sometime, something, now you
sing”, etc) before the introduction. There were a fair number of
people (25%?) from out of state.

The actual speech was pretty similar to his standard stump speeches
we’ve heard before. There seems to be more emphasis on “Two Americas
– one for Bush and his special interests and one for the rest of us”.
He also took a few questions from the crowd which were again the usual
healthcare, job/economy, etc. Also new was directly asking for
support and getting the vote out. As usual he introduced Elizabeth,
his wife, but his college senior daughter and Glenn Close who were
also on stage.

The gymnasium was packed and a few hundred people in an overflow room.
On the way out we saw the MTV Rock the Vote people and someone
gathering ‘Repeal the PATRIOT act’ signature which I signed. It was
around 1:30pm by time we got out of there and rewarded the kids’ good
behavior with a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390521/">delicious lunch at
McDonalds.

John Edwards visits Merrimack Ten Pin Bowling Alley

Sunday, January 25th, 2004

Last night while the boys were at a YMCA swim team lockin, Wendy, the
girls and I went to the John Edwards event at the local bowling alley.
He was scheduled to bowl a few frames at 8:30pm, but by 8:00 the place
was mobbed. Before he got there there started to be frequent, and
increasingly stressed out announcements from bowling alley manager –
don’t stand on the fountain, stay off the bowling area with street
shoes, move your car if it is in a firelane, move your triple parked
cars it will be towed to finally she was going to call the police and
fire marshal if people didn’t start to leave. All this before John
Edwards showed up. She would have done better to cancel the league
games and just kept the food and beer flowing.

The girls had colored some homemade ‘Go, John, Go!’ signs and were in
their pretty dresses, but the spent most of the time on our shoulders.
We ran into a video crew from Germany and a photographer from
Switzerland. There were a few college boys from Union College from
outside Albany who were up for the weekend and another college girl
from NYC said there were about 150 from her school up helping with
campaigns (didn’t catch which college or if they were only for
Edwards.)

On the way out I chatted up a reporter from the Boston Globe about how
the media seems to be covering NH as a Kerry/Dean horse race with no
real coverage of Edwards or Lieberman and just a little of Clark.
With Edwards surprise 2nd place showing in Iowa and Liebermans make or
break in NH I’d think there should be more coverage of that.

Edwards was late from attending the Democratic dinner down in Nashua
and came in and gave a 10 minute standad stump speech. Mentioned that
he isn’t here to take swipes at other democratic candiates and
introduced Glenn Close who has endorced him (see the photo below).

AP News on Netscape.com has to say of the the event:

Hundreds of people who came to see Democratic
presidential hopeful U.S. Sen., John Edwards at a bowling alley in
Merrimack, N.H. Saturday Jan., 24, 2004 were told to evacuate the
building and sent out into the cold. Edwrads(sic) spole(sic) for about
ten minutes to the crowd inside before police told them they had to
evacuate. (AP Photo/Jim Cole)

one
two
three

The didn’t kick out the crowd although the police and fire marshal
were there. The crowd rapidly left the building after Edwards left
and hung around the parking lot as people got in the cars and left.

Below are my photos from the event.

Glenn Close is right of this guy — yeah, she is out of frame… (24 Jan 2004)

At noon we’ll likely bundle everyone up for the -4F weather and check
out the event at the Nashua Junior High School…

Visited John Edwards’ Manchester, NH headquarters today

Monday, January 19th, 2004

Wendy and I were up in Manchester today and stopped in to pick up some
yard signs, video/DVDs, etc. The noon-time tracking polls had Edwards
in 3rd in Iowa and Sarah and company were getting ready for a while
ride starting tomorrow. There was a camera crew there getting some
background videos of the staffs too. I don’t think were where in any
of the shots (didn’t want to) but if you see a bright yellow Colombia
winter jacket, that is Wendy.

It is 9:45 and CNN is predicting 38% Kerry, 32% Edwards and Dean a
distant 18%!

If Edwards does well in New Hampshire next week, she may be going down
to Boston for the DNC nominating convention and she will be unbearable
to live with ;-) ;-) ;-)
