With a few seconds left in last night’s debate, the moderator asked each us for the “one word” that was the key to this election. All of us stayed in character:
Barry Hess went for the laugh and said “Votes.”
Janet Napolitano ignored the rules, using six words to say “More votes than Barry or Len.”
I followed the rules and stayed focused on the question and said: “Border!”
Our supporters erupted in applause, and that was how we went off the air.
