About Campaign Diaries

Throughout the 2004 election season, NPR will present an intimate first-person look at the campaign.

In a series called Campaign Diaries, we'll hear accounts from passionate volunteers, from professional campaign workers, typical voters and election bystanders, people who organize campaign events or drive voters to the polls.

The retired general bagged groceries on Thursday at Sully's Superette in Goffstown. Witnesses say he did a good job, but he did drop a bag of cookies. Supermarket cashier Carolyn Crean recounts the event in her campaign diary for All Things Considered.
