Bradley to Campaign with Obama
By Shailagh Murray
EXETER, N.H. -- As in Iowa, Sen. Barack Obama is counting on independents and Republicans to help push him to victory in New Hampshire. So what good timing that tomorrow, on primary eve, he will be joined on the trail by one of the heroes of the unaffiliated, former senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey.
For Bradley, the landscape here will look familiar -- he lost New Hampshire to Al Gore, in part because Sen. John McCain scooped up so many independent voters. The NBA hall-of-famer will appear at events around the state with Obama, the Democrat he called "the best candidate to win in November."
Bradley said Obama is "building a broad new coalition that brings together Democrats, Independents, and Republicans by once again making idealism a central focus of our politics...His movement for change could create a new era of American politics -- truly a new American story."
