John McCain: Should Iowa and NH stay at the head of the primary schedule?

John McCain: Absolutely. In 2000 when Delaware wanted to go ahead of New Hampshire, I said that I would even pull down the shades on Amtrak as I passed through Delaware.

And that’s . . . that’s the unique aspect and beauty of the American political scene in New Hampshire. Recorded on: 11/20/07

The citizens of New Hampshire play a unique role.
