For twentysomething human interest on the campaign trail NBC returned to Maria Menounos. Last week she profiled the daughters of John McCain and Mike Huckabee as they helped their fathers on the stump. CBS had Nancy Cordes file a similar feature last month about Sarah Huckabee and Meghan McCain and Cate Edwards. NBC's Menounos now follows up with her take on 25-year-old Cate, a Harvard Law School student who disagrees with her father about his opposition to allowing her gay friends to marry one another.
Menounos broke ranks by profiling the male offspring of candidates, too. fivebrothers.mittromney.com is the blog Mitt Romney's five sons run to publicize their father's human side. It is not clear why they bother. The best they could come up with for Menounos was this from brother Brad: "One of the funny things I have seen about my dad--he has actually got a tractor. We have a home up in New Hampshire and he gets out in his tractor and starts moving rocks, digging holes for no good reason…"--which was not actually funny.
