But I did see a story earlier in the day about Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY).
He gets to the House chamber very early - 8 A.M. - so that he's seen on TV shaking the President's hand. His view:
People say, five months after, I’ll bump into them in my district and they say to me, ‘Oh, Mr. Engel, we saw you on TV.’ And I would have done eight wonderful interviews in August and 12 brilliant interviews in September and they say, ‘No, you were shaking the president’s hand.' It’s what people remember. And my attitude is, if my constituents love it, I love it.
