Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) played a little game with Time’s Mark Halperin at the Republican Governors Association conference this week.
Halperin would name a prominent politician (and likely presidential candidate), and the governor was supposed to give two adjectives to describe that person.
The answers are interesting, if you’re a word person. I’ve taken his responses and linked them to dictionary definitions because, as one of my professors was fond of saying, words have meanings.
One interesting note: when asked about Palin, McDonnell first laughed and said “I could get myself in trouble here.” He’s taken heat for recent comments that Palin is “qualified” to be president.
