Daily Debriefing

(12/03/07 7:08am)

Former Connecticut Democratic senatorial candidate Ned Lamont visited Dartmouth on Nov. 30 to endorse presidential candidate Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn. Lamont spoke to a small gathering of students at Hinman Forum about his experiences as an underdog candidate in 2006 and applauded Dodd's involvement in the Peace Corps and his ability to connect with voters. While he supports Dodd, Lamont said he was proud of all Democrats and encouraged students to vote Democrat. Lamont defeated Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., in the senatorial primary election in 2006, but lost to Lieberman, who ran as an independent, in the general election. Lamont now serves as a fellow at the Harvard Institute of Politics and as an adjunct faculty member at Central Connecticut State University. The event was sponsored by the Dartmouth College Democrats and the Chris Dodd Campaign of New Hampshire.

Zywicki has drawn fire from alumni for his assertion that former College President James Freedman was a "truly evil man," that higher education is dominated by an "orthodoxy" of political correctness and that donations to universities are driven by ulterior motives.

Just like the Norwegian traitor who sold out his own people to the Nazis, the African Union continues to allow an American war on terror in Somalia.
