The Circumstance of Chance

I'm watching Joe the Plumber speak at the Tea Party rally in Searchlight, Nevada. Have you ever known of someone that parlayed a chance meeting with a Presidential candidate and became a national spokesman?

This is the beauty of the country we live in. Joe asked a simple question of Barack Obama and became a conservative icon overnight. Most people would shrink from that exposure. Not Joe. I admire this guy for his courage in stepping up to the plate and seizing upon his "15 minutes of fame" to leverage it into a national voice that has not been diminished.

What would you do in a similar circumstance?
