Here’s a dispatch from my colleague, Jamie Bulen in New Hampshire from an AARP event where Governor Richardson spoke to some members:
“Media today included a fifth grade reporter and two videographers – accompanied by their principal – from Beaver Meadow Elementary School. What a hoot. They were reporting for Scholastic News and were able to ask questions of the Governor before the event started. The two things that interested them: (!) Why should my parents vote for you? (2) What was the most important thing you learned in 5th grade. Cool!
“I had to help some folks so I only heard a bit of the Governor’s response, but he talked about a 5th grade teacher that really pushed him to succeed.”
They certainly learn young these days, don’t they?
