Tim Russert, tonight’s moderator, is doing his pre-game show routine. (By the way, if you want to watch this thing, which I don’t necessarily recommend, I think it’s streaming from MSNBC). Telling hilarious stories … praising the locals … and then oops! accidentally saying New Jersey instead of New Hampshire. He pretty much lost the audience on that one.
And now, here come the candidates for the “photo spray” (who knew? so many new terms for us amateurs). I think they pretty much stand around and pose for pictures — there won’t be any speaking at this point. All the suits are very dark, except for Hillary’s orange/coral situation.
And the candidates are just kinda standing stock still for photos, except when certain favored audience members get to walk through and shake hands. No idea who they are, though some of them may have been speakers earlier in the evening.
