Tired of the Election - So Are They! Sleep and the Candidates

Posted Jul 11 2008 7:10pm

Science Daily has a short but interestingarticle on the 2008 Presidential candidates and their sleep schedules. Candidates, with their insanely busy travel and appearance schedules, are not getting enough sleep. From the full article, “Sleep deprivation can have a severe impact on a candidate’s mood and performance, increasing the likelihood of a memory lapse, a risky decision, a critical mistake, an improper comment or an angry outburst.”
