I appreciate Professors Johnson and Dickinson taking a stab at understanding the outcome of the New Hampshire primary, which it is safe to say virtually no one would have predicted a year ago, certainly much less at the margins of victory in both parties. It strikes me that their approach to political analysis, both humble and inquisitive, and the wisdom of getting a liberal arts education at Middlebury, wise because among other reasons you do not know for sure what the future will bring, says a lot about what higher education should be and is dramatic evidence that asking the right questions is more important than "knowing" the answer. Thanks, and I look forward to the next installment. David Minot '74
