Phone call from my daughter

I just got off the phone with my daughter who has been working in NH for the past week for Bill Richardson. She was taking brake from holding a Richardson sign outside a polling location. She told me yesterday she worked on lit drops, then made calls, then did signs until the wee hours of the morning. She was at her polling location when the polls opened. Good daughter that she is, she called and checked in with her mom. Now, she said, she is going to find a place on the floor to take a nap.

I hope Richardson does well today! Richardson might not have the big bucks or the media attention he deserves, but he has the experience to lead. I hope the good people of New Hampshire vote for the best candidate -- Governor Bill Richardson.

After Iowa, now New Hampshire

Yes, the Iowa results were not what I had hoped. But the Governor is still in the race. In many of the caucuses, Richardson was one or two people shy from the 15% needed for "viability". In New Hampshire, a vote is a vote, without the 15% rule.

Richardson is still the best candidate out there. He has the experience and skills we desperately need. He has the policy positions we need too -- such as ending the war, improving education, getting us affordable health care, and protecting the environment.

There are three things we can do to help Richardson build momentum and do well in New Hampshire. First, you can donate to the campaign. Second, if it is at all possible, you can volunteer in New Hampshire. (My daughter is there right now.) And third, you can make calls for Richardson. If you are interested in doing either of the last two, call the NH headquarters at (603) 657-7384. We can make this happen and have an incredible President of the United States.
