In case you missed it last week, CBS News's Nancy Cordes gave a report about the Granite State's female leadership. Click the video below to watch the segment.

Some highlights from the video:

"I think it's really what's on the ballot. You know, we were laughing; Sen. Shaheen said that in New Hampshire, we don't have binders full of women. We have ballots full of women." – Democrat Carol Shea-Porter

Democrat Annie Kuster talks about her mother's influence on Democratic Sen. (and former governor) Jeanne Shaheen and then of Shaheen's influence on herself.

Maggie Hassan thinks the fact that they're all women has brought the group closer together.

You can find the full story here on CBS's website.

Like in football of too many players on the field of to get a 10-yard penalty, when is somebody* going to effect the penalty clause in the 14th Amendment, Section 2 ? because N.H. is one of the eleven states that do not elect our "judicial officers". Like in Article 82 http://www.nh.gov/constitution/clerks.html for the Court Clerks as an example. * That somebody is the governor by her Article 51 duty http://www.nh.gov/constitution/governor.html . Of there too many M.O.C.s / Members of Congress. One of them of either Kuster or Shea-Porter has got to go. It's the law! Where be "Law Enforcement" on this? Plus see The Reapportionment Act of 1929. The Federal Reps are to represent the majority. So why do we have 2 U.S. Senators for the minority and the SAME # of Reps.!? It ought to be 2 + 4, so to deduct 1 = 3.
