A full fridge

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Sen. Barack Obama, pres­i­den­tial can­di­date and best-sell­ing au­thor, has signed plenty of cam­paign signs and books.

On Nov. 20, he got to sign a re­frig­er­a­tor, the As­so­ci­ated Press re­ports.

Cam­paign­ing in New Hamp­shire, the Illi­nois Demo­cratic stopped by the Con­way Daily Sun to sign what is af­fec­tion­ately known as “Re­frig­er­a­tor One,” a fridge his ri­vals also have signed. The news­pa­per plans to sell it on EBay when the New Hamp­shire pri­mary ends and do­nate the pro­ceeds to char­ity.

“I have never signed a re­frig­er­a­tor be­fore,” Mr. Obama said in the Daily Sun’s news­room as he pulled a per­ma­nent marker from his coat pocket.

“I am al­ways pre­pared. You never know when you might need to have to sign a re­frig­er­a­tor,” he said.

Rep. Tom Tan­credo, Colorado Repub­li­can; Gov. Bill Richard­son, New Mex­ico Demo­crat; and Demo­cratic Sens. Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton of New York and Christo­pher J. Dodd of Con­necti­cut also have signed it.
