How THIS Happened

    So. Awesome.  I love the behind-the-scenes look!  Way to go, Lindsay.  I can’t wait to hear about the rest…and I’m not even a Republican. 🙂

    Wow I have a whole lot of questions I’d ask him. I’m sure yours were more diplomatic. Interested to hear about it.

      Ha! Ours were more personal, that’s for sure. The tough policy questions are being asked at every campaign stop, and we asked some of those, too- the ones that were of special interest to moms, anyway- but what we really wanted to do was show people who Newt was as a person (and we’ll do the same for all the other candidates as well)- and I think we definitely achieved that!

    Is it bad that my first reaction to the Chris Matthews photo is “Wow, Lindsey’s skin looks perfect”.

    Yeah. . .I’m all about the issues.

    This is awful, but I was wondering if you were wearing pantyhose in the pic with Newt. I have a similar dress and I am really stressed about the hosiery! HA! Oh, and way to represent – good job!

      Actually, several people have asked me that- I’ll have to write a style post on it. 🙂 The answer is yes, absolutely I wore hose- With my legs at eye level, there was no way I was going barelegged on stage. 😀  As for you, for one thing, Kate and Pippa have brought back pantyhose and now a lot of people are wearing them. Personally for me, it totally depends on the event. At a formal work event or on TV, I think hose are absolutely appropriate. At just about anything else, I think I’d go barelegged- with plenty of moisturizer mixed with a little foundation to keep my legs from looking awful in winter.

        Well thank goodness for the Kate and Pippa! I have been stressed about this dress and another dress that is a really pretty purple cause there was NO WAY I was wearing blue or purple tights to work and I was not digging the black ones! Good call on the pantyhose decision – Cspan may be the last place on earth you need to pull a Britney…

    This is fabulous.  I love you sharing all the background.

    Go Lindsay, go Lindsay, GO!

    I love how you took the photo of Chris Matthews.  That is SO you.  😉

    So glad you were able to feel well enough to do the interview. You looked great! I hope to watch the videos at some point. Maybe while I’m in the States.

    You’re the one who made Newt cry? (in a nice way, of course).  Lindsay! I’m so proud to know you!! 🙂  Congrats!!!

      Well, Frank asked the question… But I like to think I helped create the warm, friendly “let out those therapeutic tears” atmosphere!  ;D

  8. […] started January with a bang, fresh off of moderating a forum with Newt Gingrich and a room full of moms. We shared a space with MSNBC, hence the […]
