Shuffling Along

At the RNC, Pawlenty was making the rounds of some of the state delegate breakfasts. He didn't seem super-enthused or memorable.

I was going to get my credentials one morning, and the regular credential room had people I didn't know. I asked if they had seen the credentials. A tall guy looked around and handed me a hunk of tin-looking stuff with a blue ribbon. I said that is not it and went to breakfast. A few minutes later, the tall guy spoke to us (Pawlenty) and introduced a SLC Olympian who passed around an Olympic silver medal.

While the timing looks bad, I guess the lobbyist job is a payoff to keep him on the Romney roster a little longer. Maybe he wanted to get off the ship right away.
