George Pataki walked into my bar in New Hampshire...


CONCORD, N.H. -- If you sit at the bar at the Barley House, a presidential candidate might just walk past you.

On Thursday afternoon, after I reported on Jeb Bush's filing for the New Hampshire primary, I was writing a column at the bar, when who walked in but my former governor and current Republican presidential candidate George Pataki. None of the bar patrons or the staff noticed. Pataki sat down in the dining room and enjoyed his lunch. He also agreed to talk to me for 10 minutes after lunch.
