There's No Whining in Campaigning!

If you are a candidate you are going to want to whine, kvetch, complain, moan and just plain bitch about how hard it is to do all the things expected of you and be all the places you are supposed to be. That's natural. Just don't do it in public. Don't get that sour look on your face when you're sitting at the table with your fellow candidates waiting for your turn to speak. Smile! At least look busy with your notes.

Candidates don't frown, scowl, pout or whine in public. Ever. You might feel like shit. Your feet hurt. Your head hurts, and you really don't like the person your campaign manager just told you have to say hello to. Just don't show it.

As the candidate, you are always on. Someone is always watching. Don't be the one in the picture on a support of the other guy's Facebook page with the aggrieved look on your face!

Smile, you're on candid camera!
