Some ‘Conversation with the Candidate’ audience members weigh in about process


ADAM: AUDIENCE MEMBERS CAME FROM
ALL OVER NEW HAMPSHIRE TO
PART OF THESE CONVERSATIONS,
REPRESENTING THE CONCERNS AND
THE CONSTITUENTS OF DOZENS OF
TOWNOSE UNDECIDED VOTERS TO GET THEIR
THOUGHTS ON THE PROCESS. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE AWAY FOR YOU
OF SEEING SO MANY OF THESE
CANDIDATES
>>IT’S SPECTACULASHIRE, FIRST I
I’VE LIVED HERE FOR 30 YEARS,
AND WE’RE A NEIGHBORHOOD KIND OF GOVERNMENT. AND I THINK THE CONVERSATIONS
WITH THE CANDIDATES BRING A
NATIONAL DISCUSSION INTO OUR
NEIGHBORHO
AND TO BE ABLE TO ASK TH
QUESTIONS DIRECTLY, YOU KNOW, WITHIN FIVE FEET OF THEM, THIS
IS HONT OF U
THE COMPASSION — I WANT TO
KNOW, ARE THEY COMPASSIONATE? DO THEY HAVE EXPERTISE? AND IT’S A DELIGHT. IT FEELS VERY PERSONAL, AND TO
BE ABLE TO SHARE THIS WITHANITE
PLEASURE. ADAM: AND ELIZABETH, YOU HAVENHE
WITH SOME OF THE BIG QUESTIONS
IN TERMS OF THE BIGGEST ISSUES
FACING THESE CANDIDATES. WHY HAVE YOU MADE IT A
TO REALLY NOT FLINCH FROM SOME
OF THOSE BIG QUESTIONS?>>WELL, I THINK THAT I HAVE
TRIED TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE FOR OAT
BE — WE SHOULD FEEL THAT WE CAN
ASK HARD QUESTIONS, AND THEY
NEED TCCOUNTABLE TO US. I’VE MADE IT A POINT TO SEE VERY
SINGLE CANDIDATE, AND I MADE IT
A POINT TO HEAR EVERY SINGLE
CANDIDATE, BEC
CANDIDATES TO HEAR MNT THE CANDI
VOICE.G HARD QUESTIONS, WHY WOULDN’T I ASK
HARD QUESTIONS? THESE ARE HARD TIMES. AND IF YOU’RE GOING TO LEAD 300
PEOPLE, YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TOOM
NEW HAMPSHIR
HARDEST QUESTIONS, THOUGH.>>YESWHAT
DO YOU GET IN PERSON THAT YOU
MIGHT NOT GET AT A RALLY, IN
PERSON AS WELL, OR ON TVR
SOMETHING LIKE THAT?>>I THINK IT’S TOTALLY
DIFFERENT. I FEEL LIKE YOU REALLY GET A
CHANCE TO VET A PARTICULAR
CANDIDATE. THEY DO GET PUT ON THE SPOT. AFTER A WHILE, IT SEEMS LIKE
THEIMESH
TOGETHERTO BE ECHOING EACH
OTHER IN CERTAIN WAYS, WHICH I
FIND TO BE INTERESTING. WE JUST MOVED HERE, LIKE,
AND A HALF YEARS AGO FROM
MARYLAND, AND I’VE BEEN A
POLITICAL JUNKIE FOREVER,
I MEAN, THIS IS JUST GREAT. I’VE LEARNED QUITE A BIT ABOUT
THESE PEOPLE THAT I NEVER KNEW
BEFORE, AND I HAVE COME THAT
COMPASSIONATE THEY ARE ABOUT
THINGS, BECAUSE I THINK WE NEE
