What the article doesn't mention is that the GOP in N. Hampshire has welcomed the FSP, both the governor and the Chair were very positive. On the other hand, you have democrats in the state who continue to view anyone other than a democrat as a kook.

There are a lot of Democrats in NH holding their breath right now, and really, REALLY hoping that Wyoming or Montana gets the FSP nod. I think they fear the end of their well-paying party hack jobs if the FSP comes to NewHampsterLand, and that's just almost enough reason for me to hope that it is NH that's so chosen- I'd love to see the crushed NH Dems running for taxpayer-paid positions in the neighboring Dem states spreading alarm and despondency.
I was one of those who really pushed for a two-front project, going for it in the East and West simultaneously, but it was thought that we'd be smarter to put our initial numbers and other limited resources into a single successful effort first, and there's certainly wisdom in that, even if it does violate the *all eggs in one basket* principle.
But whether East or West, NH, WY or otherwise, we'll know on next Wednesday. And I expect that'll be a busy day for a lot of folks besides weeping or celebrating Democrats.

(Keep in mind that the milk of human kindness comes from a beast that is both cannibal and a vampire.)
You know, I seriously considered moving to NH after 9/11. I have family there. Actually, they're dems (Massachusettes people, altho' in all fairness my uncle has a very long attachment to NH and loves it very much), but you know, it's not here, NYC metro area.
They think the Dems are under assault there, but it seems to me they've been gaining ground. This might be a great beach-head for a counter-revolution. It would certainly be more appealing to those in the Northeast states under total LIBERAL ASSUALT then Wyoming would.
There is really no place like New England, that is for sure.
