Presidential Hopefuls Attend CEAFU Reception

Both Tom Tancredo and Ron Paul made appearances at the Concerned Educators Against Forced Unionism reception in the Cannon House Office Building. Tancredo even addressed us, if only briefly.

I was quite surprised to see Ron Paul in a suit and tennis shoes. I've since come to learn that that's his signature fashion statement. Click on the pictures to enlarge them--you can definitely see the tennis shoes.

Here's Tancredo talking:



Here's Ron Paul mingling:



Here's the closeup of his shoes:



What would the Manolo say?

Update, 7/1/07: The Manolo tells us what he would say, and he apparently doesn't approve.

Dude, it is seriously scary that you are familiar with The Manolo. Having said that, it also adds an interesting new dimension to your charm.

When I tell you the answer you'll wonder why you hadn't thought of it before. RP had a past knee injury. I too had a serious knee injury in the past and can attest to the fact that comfortable shoes are a must when I'm going to be on my feet.

I was rather subtle and discreet.

That actually makes me think considerably more favorably of Ron Paul. I like a guy who puts being comfortable over being fashionably correct.
