On the Lieberman Trail: Kisses and Hugs

Now it’s The Hug

Jason Horowitz just called in from the Lieberman campaign trail to report that at the last couple of events this morning – at a diner and a library – there were dozens of media and a determined pack of high school students in Lieberman t-shirts… but not too many actual voters.

Still, in another sign that the Lieberman folks are remaining optimistic about the impact of Bill Clinton’s splashy visit on their sagging fortunes, the hot new campaign accessory among staffers is a button picturing the senator and the former president labeled — what else? — The Hug.

Better, perhaps, than The Kiss. But less original.
