Question of the Day
Shift brings new dynamic to GOP nominating contest
MERRIMACK — The political world will shift 1,300 miles to the east later this week.
The end of Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses means the beginning of a very different contest in New Hampshire.
The conservative activists who dominate the Iowa caucus will give way to a New Hampshire electorate that includes tea partyers, moderates and left-leaning independents alike. That means whom you see and what they say on the campaign trail will likely change.
Abortion will give way to taxes. Ethanol will be consumed by budget deficits. There’s also the curse of the front-runner to consider.
Regardless of the outcome in Iowa, New Hampshire voters delight in upsetting the conventional wisdom.
An Iowa Republican caucus winner has never won a New Hampshire primary in the modern era.
Obama remembers family history while vacationing
HONOLULU — President Obama spent New Year’s Day remembering his family’s history in Hawaii.
Mr. Obama took his wife and daughters to visit his grandfather’s grave Sunday morning. The president’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham, is buried at Punchbowl National Cemetery.
The Obamas then headed to the East-West Center, a research and exhibition center that is featuring a display on the anthropological work of the president’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham.
The center says the exhibition includes photographs taken during Dunham’s years of field research in Indonesia, as well as her personal art and artifact collection.
Mr. Obama was born and mostly raised in Honolulu, though he spent a few years as a boy living in Indonesia with his mother.
