'08 Movement

John DiStaso of The Union Leader reports that " Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel, a possible '08 Presidential candidate, is tentatively planning a college tour in New Hampshire ." He also writes that, " Another Republican senator, Sam Brownback of Kansas , has made calls in these parts looking for speaking engagements."

On the Democratic side DiStaso notes, " Republican National Committeeman Tom Rath attended the ritzy Gridiron Club dinner Saturday in Washington . He reports that New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (who has not ruled out an '08 Presidential run) told the crowd that "all politics is local." The Democrat added, "So, I'm going to talk to the secretary of the interior and figure out how to get more snowmobile trails in Dixville Notch.""
