Oh, I will shake his hand, believe you me.

Perk No.1 of my job as a reporter: that guy. He's in and around town this morning, and as a member of the media, I get to be there.

And when I shake the hand of the potential future president of the United States of America, I'll be sure to tell him Mom says hi.

And then I might squeal a little. On the inside. But then very loudly on the outside when I am out of hearing range.

Oh, and by the way, the only other perk to being a reporter is... well... nothing.
