October 2012: Greta Van Susteren excitedly posts a new press release from Team Romney.
Mitt Romney today announced the support of former Denver Broncos quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer John Elway.
"I know a thing or two about comebacks," said Elway, famous for his fourth-quarter heroics, in introducing McCain this morning to several thousand raucous partisans in a sports arena here.... Elway said he was absolutely confident McCain could stage his own fourth-quarter comeback. "Until we get to that vote November 4, I don't care what the polls say," he said, saying the race was closer than the polls suggest. "I think he needs a field goal," Elway said. "That's all he needs. He needs a field goal."
John Elway's appearance at a campaign rally for President Bush Tuesday wasn't his first venture into the political spotlight, but it may have been his most prominent.
And yet this leads the Drudge Report, for some reason.
