Water. Check. Flats. Check. Blotting Tissue. Check.

Melissa sent me a link to Arianna Huffington's website. I guess Arianna is out of the CA campaign, but her blog is still around. She posted some real gems. Here's a sample:

Here then are my seven hard and fast rules for surviving the rigors of the campaign trail.

1. Absolutely no alcohol. Not even a sip of wine from somebody else's glass.
2. No carbs. Although I must admit I broke down on the airplane and had a bag of pretzels. But it was a really tiny bag.
3. Absolutely no high heels.
4. Drink lots and lots and lots of water. And when you think you've drunk enough, drink another bottle
4a. Make sure you have a well-trained advance person who always knows where
the closest bathroom is.
5. Keep plenty of blotting tissue handy for dealing with shiny patches in-between interviews. Especially if, like me, you have Greek olive oily skin - it's great for wrinkles, but bad for TV.
6. An ample supply of café lattes.
7. And, most importantly, it helps to no end to have a set of ideas you passionately believe in - and that you don't mind saying again and again and again and again and again and again..

I like this post for a lot of reasons. There's the practical make up tips Who wouldn't like that? Also, Arianna's not pretending to be a guy. She's concerned with her shiny patches. Does any male candidate even admit to using TV make up? Of course, it is a little disturbing that having ideas is last on the list of priorities for the day.
