Campaign 16 in One Picture

Backstage in the filing room of the media center of the NBC News/YouTube Democratic Campaign Debate at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, S.C. on January 17, 2016.

To partly set the table for a longer and more nuanced campaign post tomorrow, I wanted to share this insightful photo with you. It’s by Campaign ’16 visual gadfly and occasional RTP contributor, Mark Peterson.

We all know how easy it is to go on-and-on about something rather than hit it right on the head. For context, the caption reads:

In one picture, Mark’s photo tells us what a good part of the campaign, and certainly, what the overwhelming nature of the media coverage has been about. Static.
