The unforgiving minute

Last weekend, I attended the Tom Harkin Steak Fry in Indianola, Iowa, and got to shake hands with several of the Democratic presidential candidates.

I will make this prediction:

If the election is decided based on who has the softest hands--not the softest grip, but the softest hands--it will be Governor Bill Richardson in a landslide.

I have no idea what to make of that factoid, but I'm here to tell you: Richardson has really, really smooth skin on his hands.

My consulting pharmacist says that presidential candidates have to spend a lot of time on their hand care regime: Not only is all that hand-shaking a disease vector, but there's the simple problem of chafing from all that flesh-pressing.

Minute's up.
