Ryan Works the Rope Line

DAYTON, Ohio — At yesterday’s rally at Miami University, I deployed my 13-year-old son Jefferson to get photos of Paul Ryan shaking hands with the crowd afterwards.

Jefferson snapped the above photo, of Ryan reaching up to shake hands with the guy next to him. Immediately after this photo was taken, Ryan shook Jefferson’s hand. Click the image to enlarge. It’s a great photo, don’t you think?

      I think you deserve a raise from your Dad after managing that great photo, Jefferson.  Keep them coming.

    It appears that the man in the upper left corner is David Axelrod.

    It looks like the Secret Service guys on candidate detail have a slightly more relaxed dress code than we’re used to seeing.

     Not to mention teaching them to steer from the passenger seat while Daddy tweets…
