Obama adds event to his NH schedule

New Hampshire residents, youd think, would be used to another weekend with another potential presidential candidate trying to woo them.

But Sundays visit by Illinois Senator Barack Obama is shaping up to be anything but ordinary.

And now, the Boston Globe has learned, he has added a book signing in Portsmouth to his schedule. The book signing coincides with a rally in Manchester that afternoon to celebrate Democratic victories in November.

The event, sponsored in part by RiverRun bookstore, is expected to draw enough attention that he will be at the Frank Jones Center instead of the cozy bookstore. He is expected to begin signing his latest book The Audacity of Hope? at 11 a.m.

Tom Holbrook, co-owner of RiverRun, said he expected the event will be mayhem.?
