Out of Hillsborough

The Democrats had a good showing here in Hillsborough at the annual Balloon Fest. Failing to mention the small bands of Biden and Edwards folks before was an oversight earlier, as was it to mention the absence of any POTUS candidates in NH today, sadly.

The story though were the campaigns of Sen. Obama and Gov. Richardson. They each had a good presence - the Richardson troupe particularly eyebrow raising. The New Mexico Governor's campaign may be one to watch in the coming months. But with Obama continuing to draw huge crowds wherever he goes, and the Hillary and Bill show really just getting started, its tough calculus to see how such a candidacy could break out.

Its pouring again as we start to consider the long road home.
