George Will`s tribute to Gene McCarthy includes this:

The case against New Hampshire`s primary is that its power is disproportionate for a state so unrepresentative of America`s demographic complexities. The case for New Hampshire can be put in a name: Gene McCarthy. The small state gives an unknown underdog challenger, practicing retail politics, a fighting chance.The Poet Who Took On LBJ

May I say that McCarthy`s is not the first name that springs to my mind when I think of New Hampshire?

But what does Mr. Will mean when he says "unrepresentative of America`s demographic complexities.?"

Quick, the Census! Oh, I see. New Hampshire is 95 percent white. Can`t have that, can we?
