The Dante Effect

September 22, 2006

Dante Scala, associate professor of politics, has been in big demand in recent weeks. Before, during and after New Hampshire’s Sept. 12 primary, Scala’s comments could be seen, heard and read widely.

On Aug. 30, he talked to the Boston Globe about how a critical story in Harper’s magazine might affect congressman Jeb Bradley’s electoral chances. “‘I didn’t see any kind of smoking gun, so to speak.’” Scala said. On primary night itself, he offered analysis on WMUR and the next morning he appeared on New Hampshire Public Radio’s The Exchange. On Sept.17, he commented on poll results for Democratic congressional candidate Paul Hodes, saying “‘that’s pretty grim’” to the Concord Monitor. And he also discussed voter turn out and candidates’ prospects with the Portsmouth Herald. Scala’s political wisdom has also been carried by and The Telegraph

    Any suggestion for a 2006 political science graduate from UNH?

    She also speaks fluent French and has an international studies minor.

    What about news about students Tom DeRosa and Brian Lawson? They recently made The Hotline. Also, Brian runs, which is now frequently mentioned on various political sites.

    Saint A’s direct mail piece about the blog drove me to take a look. Great idea! I am also so glad to read about Dante Scala’s teaching role at the college. It is so important to have a Saint A’s professor weighing in on the current political climate.
