Sen. John Edwards' Trip to New Hampshire, Feb. 1-3, 2002   ...2 of 11 >>
At the Concord house party, Steve Rothenberg, an unidentified woman, Chris Sullivan, Rob Werner, and Mary Ann Gaschnig look on as Sen. Edwards takes a question.  Werner asked a question about the economy.  Rothenberg, technology coordinator for the Concord School District, did a little homework before the party.  He "went on line and just started poking about" to learn a bit about Edwards.  Based on his research he said that Edwards "seems like a traditional Democrat" and that "nothing I've read about him stood out."  During the Q&A he asked a question about whether President Bush had adequately used the occasion of the war in Afghanistan to get Americans to think about some of the broader issues facing the country.
