At Large The (Not So) Lonely Life of the Second-Tier Candidate
posted by June 4 at 14:55 PMon
Last night I posted some photos I took in the spin room after the Democratic debate in New Hampshire. I thought my shot of the nearly-empty and completely ignored Kucinich “spin stand” said something about the loneliness of the second-tier candidate.
But I should also show you what happened next. It may make you feel a little less sorry for Kucinich.
About ten minutes later, the Congressman walked in with his bombshell 29-year-old wife, Elizabeth. (It’s been reported, with some glee, that Elizabeth has a tongue piercing and a familiarity with the kama sutra.) Suddenly, the Kucinich stand wasn’t so lonely anymore…
A crush of media surrounded the couple, and pushed little old me to the outer edge of their scrum. This morning, a sharp-eyed friend spotted photographic evidence, via the AP, of my lack of sharp enough elbows. I’m not saying which one is me, but suffice to say I’m not in the inner circle.
