Merrimack, href="http://www.ci.merrimack.nh.us">NH always has politicians to
our Fourth of July parades. Someone in town said it was because we
have a good sized town, well educated and reasonably upper-middle
class population and the pollisters think it gives a clue on how a
candidate will play nationally.
This year's parade included the NH Governor href="http://www.nh.gov/governor/">Craig Benson (R), href="http://www.joe2004.com">Joe Lieberman (D-CT), and href="http://www.grahamforpresident.com/index.html">Bob Graham
(R-FL). The campains for John Kerry, Howard Dean, Dick Gephardt, John
Edwards had a presence, but the candidate wasn't there.
Here are some pictures we got with the ones that made it.

Back in 2000, George W. Bush and Pat Buchanan were at our local
parade. Bush blew us off, but Buchanan stopped over to say hello.
