Gary Johnson stumbles

It might not be the headline he sought, but CNN provides coverage of Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and his recent struggles:

Why is Gary Johnson still in the race?

Gary Johnson is trying to be a major figure on the world stage, and it doesn't sound like he's doing it for the company.

The Libertarian presidential nominee was asked by MSNBC's Chris Matthews during a town hall forum to name his "favorite foreign leader."
Johnson began to restate the question, and Matthews interrupted: "Any one of the continents, any country. Name one foreign leader that you respect and look up to, anybody."
Third-party candidates typically have trouble getting any attention at all, so perhaps the coverage of Johnson's stumble isn't all bad. And he did recently garner the endorsement of The Detroit News. But as Donald Trump has demonstrated of late, not all press is good press.
