Michael K. Garofalo, chairman of the Salem (NH) Democratic Town Committee, sent the e-mail below to several hundred of his  fellow NH Democratic activists in the latter part of September 2006:

Hello All:
As you know, the prospective 2008 presidential candidates are heading to NH - many have already spent considerable time here.  We will all be asked to look at each of them and choose who we will support in 2008.  Now if you know me well, you know that I am an unapologetic and proud liberal.  I believe in what liberals traditionally believe - a woman's right to choose, peace and safety in the world, a fair education for all children, etc.  When I look for a candidate to support in 2008, I tried to pick the person who met most of my requirements for not only getting elected but also for becoming a great president.
When I weighed the plusses and minuses of all of the prospective candidates, one candidate consistently rose to the top.  His experience was far more accomplished than any of his peers' and his morals and personal integrity were beyond reproach.
His attributes are:

Senator Bayh will be traveling through New Hampshire during September 24 and 25.  In fact, he will be in Salem at a fundraiser for Senate candidate Beth Roth on 9/25 at 8 AM at Bickford's Restaurant.  Please join us there.  I hope that you get a chance to meet him, to hear what he has to say, and that you will help me to convince him to run for President of the United States.  I am ready to begin as soon as he is ready to run.  If you need more information about Senator Bayh, please let me know and I will be happy to add you to the weekly emailing list for him.
The Democratic Party needs a strong, and smart nominee to win not only all of the traditionally "blue" states, but to also win over people in the traditionally "red" states.  Senator Evan Bayh can do that.  Please help me encourage him to join the fight!
Thanks!  Have a great weekend!
