Paradoxically, I think that New Hampshire is beginning to slip from the GOP's grasp, but even more importantly, veering away from liberatarian conservatism into the morass of Northeasten liberalism.
That's why I thought that former Gov. Benson's warm reception of the the "free-staters" was a wise political maneuver.
If the Republicans can engineer a ticket containing both him and Gov. Owens-another executive from a state that the libs are furiously besieging-then I don't think Hillary-or Edwards, or Bayh, or whomever-has a shot in hell of capturing the White House in '08.
