When Candidates Sleep In
How late do presidential candidates sleep when they get to “sleep in?” The AP is glad you asked:
Delaware Sen. Joe Biden: 8:30-9 a.m.
New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: “I feel lucky when I can sleep until 7 a.m.”
Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd: “With a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old?”
Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: 7 a.m.
Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich: 8:30 a.m., according to his wife, Elizabeth. But she said this is how they really like to sleep in: up for brunch and then back to bed until 4:30 p.m., John Lennon-and-Yoko Ono style.
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: 8 a.m.
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: 7 a.m.
Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback: 7:30 a.m.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani: 8 a.m.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: “Five a.m. is late for me. Most days I am up no later than 4:30 a.m.”
California Rep. Duncan Hunter: 7:30 a.m.
Arizona Sen. John McCain: 8 a.m.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: 7 a.m.
Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo: 8 a.m.
Becks cites this is a reason she could never become president. I rarely sleep past 7, so I’d be fine on this score.
There are many, many other reasons that I could never get elected, though.
