Eight on and a nod in New York when last we left him. Our roving reporter in New Hampshire ABC's Brad Melky was carping on the and bank neatly knees diner. In Keene, New Hampshire this man might have one of the toughest gig in TV today. He is visiting five diners in one day common thing to eat. At least the station as he plays Brad you are now is Maryann. In dairy New Hampshire is that race. Let's write an hour and a half east of where we just work. At the end of today you'll probably feel this pull me down the road that investing is able to drive and it's. Beautiful day to dangerously outside but here the energy is very warm and cozy. Though Mary and it's kind of like another throwback diner. Pocket placing New Hampshire another one of those month. Obviously four candidates on the campaign trail right what's it like it died. Well he. You're exactly right throwback a lot of these places are throwback places right knowing their history the fifties and sixties. This place actually wasn't built until the 1980s but it's got the 1950s died in fact. If you look around here and all the stuff. We just turn the camera around to show you the seat. You'll see all the weaknesses after blue skirts on it had been purchased and her hair there's certain. So it isn't. Coke floats everybody root beer floats and it's definitely electricity elements that there on the wall and it's definitely throw that in fact that we business jukebox and actually put a few quarters ending in place to stay out. Get my arthritic India than the last one you are acting like they really went all in on this in 1950 being here to what new or different in this play. From Lindy where you were in the morning. Well it's closer to Manchester and Manchester is the place where all the candidates. Look to come in because it's been one large city in New Hampshire see action to find a lot more candidates. On a date debate on a day to day basis for the expert on this actually might be our the general manager here Christina injury only. Christina maybe it. Come over here with me. Welcome here here live on And maybe you could tell us actually what separates this place from your average New Hampshire. I. Complete turnaround actually clean clean and here's this year so it becomes it community anybody dollars and married and panhandlers on the way to variances. Everyone seems no end and I'm glad a lot of explosion last. I'm nineteen years. Politics Nancy and we have a lot of homes. Do interviews and whatnot so we actually had national me again as things get out of place that's how. How do you convinced him. I'm here by the way and not enough the restaurant down the road we actually don't do anything they come to us that it years ago I can't leverage and it was clumsy. In a segment where we. In other kinds of people would depend opinions and and dust can't. They don't pollen count. Eight we don't have to ask anything they come here we get help bosnians and apparently the man who. Oh his. GOP it obviously I can imagine some restaurants in the world probably don't wanna have a circus of a media coming in just you know. Does disturbing all the customers because kind of welcome to Kelly had a few regular accident. Back talent but they haven't seen before aren't you know they might choose to sit in section. Open up inside me that night for the most are people love the fact they could come in just the good fatalism and end up eating candy. It's great people like. That's great and done I think Christine is agreed to give us a little tour of the play solo home. All casino where should we start if you would like there's plenty of pictures here candidates' hands and other you know. Red Sox players who braved bullets turn the camera around him. And so yes and who we see and hear. Isn't it funny. I. Outweigh he had and help go look Howard Dean. It's Howard Dean of course we're right across the border in Vermont so I'm sure he was a familiar with the some of the area residents Bill Bradley yeah. So what does this really wanted this really picked up when did you. Start seeing candidates come walking there. Yeah hey probably he is and I peace we'll come. I. Suck exhibited against. Us there's Ron Paul of course the sun room and tune in as well. That's how metrics and thought I ended the first time. Also this is all the more this is the candidate just coming this year just as much as pristine. And of course Bill Clinton. Clinton actually cameras must come today. Place next week we. Had actually Hillary here yet she's not hall UC. Another case of Hillary Clinton not coming to a diner yet so incoherent on Larry Lucchino for other us. The hearing covering some kind of pattern here that I think is something we need to really into hey I'm sure you want to ask her. She mentioned that some of the regular sometimes go and hide in other foods when they see candidates coming if they don't wanna get in all of if people there actually talk about presidential politics as much as we talk about presidential politics didn't answer. Yeah let's ask us. She isn't you know you get these people that are hiding out trying to get away from all the humbled sometimes but you think the average New Hampshire right matters grand cedar. Talks about politics that he'd rather table meeting more than the average American. I'm this time here say yes because you know other out of place coming opulent. On easy on the news this year's that was yesterday's meeting obviously you know politics focus on being unions are just increased my top U. Kind of I would I was. The and I would agree on up from just my time here it does seem like in New Hampshire you can tell who's from here who's not because I ask somebody who they're voting for. Anyone from another from when the other 4948. States won't tell me but everyone from New Hampshire seems to want to discuss it with me and it's not a lot of thoughts on the topic Cella where where else are we go here.
