Mark Warner on Face the Nation - NH Trip

Mark Warner was on “Face the Nation” yesterday to discuss the mid-term elections. I didn’t get a chance to see the show and was wondering if someone could comment on his performance. The transcript looks good other than he mentioned “the sensible center” again. Please Governor banish this term from your vocabulary if you want to win the Democratic primary. More on this later.

See the transcript, here. Also see the recent DLC article called The Sensible Center authored by Warner.

Other News:

Warner was noted as one of the top five governors by Time magazine. Link for the Time article here.

Warner has begun traveling the country to test whether his brand of bipartisan pragmatism has any place in the polarized arena of national politics, saying, "Americans want somebody who is going to be straight with them, even if the truth may not be what they want to hear.”

The Times-Dispatch reports that Warner is making the rounds to New Hampshire. In the Granite state, Warner is meeting with Gov. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire who just happened to be Kerry’s former campaign chair.

Warner also will meet privately with another member of the Kennedy school faculty, former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, a Democrat - perhaps picking up pointers on her state's politics.
