Mike Gravel Is a Cabbie For A Day [VIDEO]

I happened to catch this interesting little segment on The Today Show and I thought I'd share it with you. In a knock off of the offensive and horrendous MTV "reality" show Cribs, the folks at The Today Show will be doing segments with each of the 2008 presidential candidates in the hopes of showing a more "human" side of them and they're calling them "Candidate Cribs". Naturally Gravel's is idiosyncratic and completely unfiltered--which is why so many progressives like him. Check out the video to your right to see Gravel talk about his youthful days as a Columbia student and cab driver in NYC as well as his goal of ending the War in Iraq.
