MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) - Journalists from across the country are filing into the filing center. All the usual suspects are here - respected columnists, veteran political reporters, local, national and international media.
But you might be surprised to know that rubbing shoulders with them are publications like Elle Magazine and Playboy.
Before you start cracking jokes about playmates and running mates, remember that magazines like these often publish long and insightful articles on politics -– as well as "those" photos.
In fact, those with very long memories might recall that it was a Playboy interview with Jimmy Carter in 1976 that made quite an impact on the presidential campaign, in which he acknowledged he “looked on a lot of women with lust.”
