At this time, we will board all candidates…
Stairs. If you are able to spot candidates climbing back onto their campaign plane, readers eat that up. I find roughly 8,500,000 tarmac stair-climbing photos from this campaign alone, and I’m thinking of publishing a coffee table book called, “Steps to the White House.”
Awesome! I bet that would sell a lot, and these examples are gripping and dramatic. But as important as the candidates are, isn’t there a way they could arrange for moving stairs to their planes at each stop?
Yes, they could. The legal term for having that in a contract is “escalation clause.”
You are such a loser! That’s it, I’m never coming back here!
You’ll come back. They always come back.
