From the Al Smith dinner. It was nice to see their funny sides and to let go for one night. You will laugh. And yes Romney can throw a joke. He looked human and more charismatics. That’s the side that people want to see.
Who is Al Smith? According to Wikipedia:
Alfred Emanuel “Al” Smith (December 30, 1873 – October 4, 1944) was an American statesman who was elected the 42nd Governor of New York three times and was the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate in 1928. He was the foremost urban leader of the efficiency-oriented Progressive Movement and was noted for achieving a wide range of reforms as governor in the 1920s. He was also linked to the notorious Tammany Hall machine that controlled Manhattan politics; was a strong opponent of prohibition and was the first Roman Catholic nominee for President.
He was known for being a committed “wet”, against the prohibition. That way he attracted millions of voters from different backgrounds.
