CONWAY, N.H. –During a stop at the Conway Daily Sun on Tuesday, White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was asked by one of the papers’ staffers—after he signed the top of a refrigerator—to name three people he would want to dine with.
“Jesus, Gandhi” and then, after pondering a moment, he added “Lincoln.”
At the paper, Obama signed a refrigerator on the second floor autographed by other candidates—including chief rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) who had stopped by last week.
“Thanks for the great way to help charity,” the left-handed Obama wrote. “It’s unique.”
He signed above and to the left of Clinton’s distinctive script. “Thanks for bearing with my answers,” she wrote.
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Ct.) and former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Al.) were on the fridge as well as GOP Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Calif.).
After the primary, the refrigerator will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to a charity.
