A quick note on not getting press
Lamont decided to take a vacation in Northern New England. Lieberman dominated the press in the days following the election. He reestablish his street cred. He remained a "serious" candidate. He went on to win the general election by 10 points.
I believe a lesson can be learned from this incident. A lesson that everyone already knows. Candidates than dominate the press win.
Governor Sarah Palin will have to sit down with the press soon enough (as she will with Charlie Gibson). For if she in anyway cedes press coverage, it could end up hurting the ticket. You might argue that she will always dominate the press coverage (she is after all a star in the making). But I believe that after a while, if she does not stand up to the heat (biased or not), it will come back to bite.
I think we are all looking forward to the Vice Presidential debate.
