THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST:

Hiring outlook is bright across New Hampshire (Manchester Union Leader, 9/13/05)

Manchester-area employers expect to hire at a brisk pace during the last three months of this year, according to Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.

From October to December, 37 percent of companies interviewed plan to hire more employees, while none expect to reduce payrolls, according to Manpower spokesperson David Picha. Another 63 percent expect to maintain their current staff levels. [...]

For the coming quarter, job prospects appear best in construction, durable and non-durable goods manufacturing, wholesale/retail trade, education and services.


That's with an unemployment rate that's already down to about 3.5%.

AC:

He's ideal--a moderate Democrat with a Republican Executive Council and Legislature.
