How to limit a forum audience ...

charge $90 to attend!: ["NH Senate, gubernatorial forums set for September"].
That'll keep the rabble out.

Should he or shouldn't he? Should John Edwards address these rumors about a love child? I'm beginning to wonder ... so are others: ["Dems call on Edwards to address affair rumors"].
The photo looks like him but it also looks like it has been doctored. I mean, nice match up with the color and the sweat line. And, if it is him, why wasn't he smart enough to wear a condom in this day and age? Oh my word!
Full disclosure: I voted for John Edwards in the New Hampshire primary and I have no regrets about it at all because I sincerely believe he was the best candidate running this year. He was the first political candidate since Ralph Nader in 1996 and 2000 and Jerry Brown in 1991 who spoke about my concerns.

Speaking of John Edwards, I received this post this morning about another person banned from Daily Kos: ["Banned at Daily Kos because of John Edwards"].
The title says it all. I surely hope this person wasn't a "subscriber" to Kos, paying money to essentially have a bit of fun writing. I wonder though. If you pay to play, can you still be banned? What a waste of money that would be. "People-powered" my ass!

New Hampshire will have at least three independent candidates on the ballot for president, including Ralph Nader, assuming the signature counts work out: ["Nader clears first hurdle"].
Interestingly, Nader submitted more than 6,000 signatures - about 2,500 more than when he ran as the Green Party candidate in 2000. While the Greens have historically always been disorganized, and were in 2000, there seemed to be a lot more interest in a Nader candidacy then than now. What's going on out there? Obama remorse?
Libertarians will have two candidates on the ballot: George Phillies, from Massachusetts, who was not nominated by the party nationally, and nominee Bob Barr.
No word on whether Cynthia McKinney is on the ballot or not, or if there was even an effort to get her on the ballot.
This could all get interesting.

Speaking of McKinney, look at this: ["First presidential poll including McKinney"].
In this specific national poll - meaning it is useless - Obama loses five points and McCain loses two when the three main indies are included.
