Who's the tall Hungarian anyway?

The Cedar Rapids Gazette and Des Moines Register cover Pataki's stop at the State Fair. They both noted that many fair visitors were wondering who the tall guy in the pressed pants was.

  • "Several passers-by inquired of media who Pataki was, but he took it in stride as he worked to bolster his name identification among voters who make the first choices in the presidential selection process"(Gazette)
  • At well over 6 feet tall and dressed in a long-sleeved dress shirt and pressed khaki pants, Pataki stood out. "It's one of those guys," said Buck Noah of Des Moines. "Now which one is he?" (Register)

Both papers also covered Pataki talking about the foiled terror plot, and what New York was doing to bolster security.

  • "We did bring in some more National Guard and focus some more attention on the airports" (Gazette)

That's funny, we didn't see him discussing that on Fox News. Get on it Team Pataki.

The funny thing is even if nobody has heard of Pataki at the fair he still has a higher approval rating there than in his home state...

Other than McCain, Giuliani and a little bit of Gingrich, most of our candidates had little name ID.

Most Iowans didn't know who Bill Clinton was in August of 91. Most Iowans thought George W was his dad in 99.

Pataki knocked off Mario Cuomo and has easily won two gubernatorial reelection campaigns in a heavy Democrat state.

Let's stay positive about all of our candidates for President since we're going to have to get behind one of them two years hence.

I must retort.

The media will never be able to find any quote of mine to use against our nominee in 2008.

    The Cooler line is an exclusive creation of Caucus Cooler and will be updated as the political environment changes.
    It is an unscientific assessment of the Iowa Caucus (not the Presidential race as a whole) from an insiders view at the given time. The line IS NOW mathematically accurate but is NOT intended for gambling purposes. Information may only be reproduced with credit to the Caucus Cooler.
