Before New Hampshire's presidential primary election, Dartmouth was in the national spotlight in late January, hosting television coverage relating to the primary. Dartmouth faculty members were also quoted in national newspapers and on the British Broadcasting Corp. and National Public Radio. Democratic presidential candidates Howard Dean, Joseph Lieberman and Dennis Kucinich discussed issues of concern to women in the Moore Theater with an audience of students and community members (below) on Jan. 25. Cosponsored by Dartmouth, the Lifetime Network and ABC-TV's Good Morning America, the "Every Woman Counts" forum offered nearly two hours of candidate responses to questions from the audience and from moderator Claire Shipman, a senior correspondent for ABC News. Linda Fowler, Director of the Rockefeller Center and one of the organizers of the event, helped open the forum (above). After opening statements by the candidates, members of the audience, which included New Hampshire voters, Dartmouth students and leaders of national women's organizations, questioned them about issues from domestic violence to equity in the workplace. On Jan. 26 CNN senior correspondent Bob Franken made live appearances from the Top of the Hop from dawn until 3 p.m. The network also aired its popular program Crossfire live from the Top of the Hop. Co-hosts Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala joked with members of a student audience during commercial breaks, while Kerry and Dean supporters gathered outside. Students also took part in live discussions on C-SPAN, and NBC Nightly News aired a feature on Dean volunteer Sarah Ayres '06.
