Michele Bachmann was one of the friendliest candidates, even taking time to sign autographs. I like that she told her handlers to hold on a minute so she could speak with fans.
Herman Cain was also extremely nice and friendly.
Why is this picture a little blurry?
Great Question! So I was shooting in a group of other media who were all generally polite. There was some elbowing because the candidates were fast on the move to get in to the debate, and there were secret service and other security pushing you and stuff, but otherwise they were polite. BUT there was one news team from France, and they were not polite. The camera man pushed and shoved, and used his video camera like a club. Thanks a lot France.
Behind Michele is 'failed mall cop'. He was not a cop, nor was he security for Dartmouth college. He took his job too seriously, and was a jerk.
Ron Paul was the fastest candidate to enter the building from his SUV door to venue door.
