Gravel speaks before the debate

From NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli
HANOVER, NH -- Once again, Gravel will find himself on the far end of the stage during tonight's debate. But to his immediate right will be none other than Hillary Clinton, and Gravel plans to use his position to his advantage. "I'm going to turn to Hillary [and say], 'Hillary why did you vote for this fig leaf for George Bush to invade Iran." Gravel was referring to the Kyl-Lieberman amendment that passed the Senate today, which brand's the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. "It's a Gulf of Tonkin kind of resolution that would give George Bush the fig leaf, the fig leaf, to invade [Iran]," Gravel said. "This could be the beginning of the end."

Asked about his standing in New Hampshire, Gravel said: "I don't know... I have been working hard in New Hampshire. I don't have the celebrity nature. And then you get the national media who doesn't even want to cover you."
