Romney Begins Vermont Visit By Getting Stuck in Traffic Behind a Tractor

TractorRaise your hand if you've ever been stuck in traffic behind a tractor on a rural Vermont road. All of you? Okay, that's what I thought.

Well, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is decamping to Vermont for debate prep, and guess what happened?! The Associated Press has the scoop:

Mitt Romney's motorcade, en route to the home of former Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey in West Windsor, Vt., on Tuesday morning, got briefly waylaid — by a tractor.

Welcome to Vermont, Mitt! And it's not the first time this week that the Romney caravan's been stuck behind something in a small New England town, as AP reporter Kasie Hunt reports:

This could be a fun game. What else can Romney get stuck behind while he's here? An escaped cow running free? An orchard truck spilling its apples all over the road? The Burlington Snowdragon? It's up to you, Windsor County. This is your moment.
