Last night C-SPAN took me to Mack’s Apple Orchard in New Hampshire. Barack Obama was talking with a group standing on green grass in a semicircle. It didn’t have the same feel as most campaign reporting. The candidate was talking to people instead of talking to the camera. It didn’t sound like orchestrated sound bites designer to compete for space on the evening news. The questions were from local citizens and had not been screened. The answers were candid and complete. It was strangely relaxing to not feel the tension that often accompanies the presidential campaign.
