The Candidate

Ed and Edna walked to the rear of the hotel to avoid the boisterous crowd out front. They didn’t realize a famous political candidate would be in town when they made their dinner reservation.

Suddenly two men dressed in black accompanied the candidate out to a waiting car in the back. The candidate never looked up, slightly brushing Ed’s shoulder as he hurried past. Edna feared they were going to be trampled.

Back home after dinner they watched a TV news snippet of the candidate’s visit.

Man of the People for the People, read the gigantic sign behind the podium.
