Agony of Da' Feet. What Do the Candidates Shoes Say, If Anything, About the GOP Pack? – Via Photographer M. Scott Brauer in New Hampshire

Photographer M. Scott Brauer is on the ground in New Hampshire for BagNews. We will be posting his images through the primary.

Given Romney’s a shoe-in tonight (sorry, ouch!), I thought we’d drop our sights a little and use a different platform to get a  toe-hold on the Republicans trying desperately to get a leg up on each other in attempting to inherit Obama’s loafers. How do you size these up?
