I kept waiting for her to ask him if it was against the rules for him to smile. Even once. The guy's expression led me to think that his intestine was building a brick.

Ha, yeah there were a lot of pundits who mentioned that he looked like a schoolteacher, only my teachers smiled once in awhile. The thinking might've been: "if I smile, she smiles. And if she smiles she'll be more likeable as a candidate, and the more likeable candidate usually I'm going to keep a stone face."
