It's not about how you start
Ted Cruz had a pre-swearing in conference call today for bloggers, which reminded me of a funny moment from when he launched his campaign by blogger conference call back in January 2011.
As Cruz began to speak, working up to the moment where he'd declare his candidacy...someone ordered breakfast from the McDonald's drive-thru window. And then kept ordering breakfast. We listened to about 30 awkward seconds of someone ordering McMuffins while completely oblivious that they did not have their phone on mute.
Cruz adroitly rescued the situation by making a crack about Hoover's "a chicken in every pot," but it was an inauspicious beginning.
But, as they say, it's not about how you start, it's about how you finish the campaign.
