"The era of carrots has got to end"

So says Hillary Clinton, and I for one think it's a great campaign slogan. (She said it Tuesday during a Senate hearing; if you want meaning and context, knock yourself out.)

The senior Senator from New York brings her message of carrot liberation to New Hampshire this weekend, for a series of "Conversations with Granite Staters." Some of these will be "Town-Hall Style," according to the campaign, while others will be "House Party-Style." (Odd, inconsistent hyphenation taken from press release.)

Clinton wraps up and leaves the state Sunday evening, and Barack Obama -- who has yet to state his position on a carrot-era exit strategy -- flies in Monday afternoon as part of his "announcement tour," as his web site calls it. He'll be doing one house party, a sold-out Town Hall Meeting at UNH, and, I'm told, one "unplanned, off-the-route" event still being finalized. Can you feel the spontaneity?

Another likely soft-on-carrots candidate, Bill Richardson, campaigns in NH on the 16th and 17th.
