How many times has this happened to you? You need a one dollar bill, but when you open your wallet all you can see are 100 dollar bills – lots of them. And there are cameras recording the thing.
It just happened to Willard Romney.
MITCHELL: And as Huntsman joined the fray, Newt Gingrich's campaign continued to implode. Today two top fundraisers quit, joining the staff exodus. And there was also an iconic moment, as occurs on these campaigns. Mitt Romney in
in a Mexican resident, try--restaurant--trying to trade a dollar bill with a young boy. All he could find in his wallet at first were $100 bills. Brian, you can't make it up. Colorado
WILLIAMS: These little moments from the campaign...
WILLIAMS: ...seemingly inconsequential, can sometimes be indelible. Or when they're president, both Bushes had theirs: the supermarket scanner, and George W. Bush saying "the Googles" about the Internet era, so. And I understand there is yet another from the campaign trail.
I bet this will never happen to Mitt again. Next time, he'll carry two wallets - one loaded with Wall Street loot and the other with ones to show the small folk.
