“Birddogging” is an expression used to describe the activities of single-issue advocates when they follow political candidates to campaign events for the purpose of drawing focus to an issue. New Hampshire is a great place to birddog insofar as nearly all the presidential candidates focus a large measure of their in-person campaign appearances there the month before the New Hampshire Presidential Primary, the events are relatively small, and from the center of the state the candidates are nearly always less than an hour and a half away.

What follows are my experiences birddogging on behalf of the self-employed, this year and during the 2008 and 2004 presidential primary campaigns.
