At first glance when any presidental candidate sees a person who looks like Michael Moore they may have shied away from a confrontation, but on second look it was Darren Garnick of Slate sporting his 5 month old daughter. And well.... who can turn that photo opp down.
And with any original, and cute stunt, the talk show circuit took the story and ran with it. Maybe the baby sensed that a Clinton passed the Family and Medical Leave Act as high marks in baby handling went to the Democrats with Hillary and topping the list. Republicans McCain and Guilianni got a teary reception but McCain handled it well joking "well there goes another vote" Giuliani, faced with this crisis quickly panicked and tossed the baby back. Yes I know, any first reaction by a baby is meaningless, but the media can have a lasting impression.
