Malloy gets his feet wet

What’s it like to walk in the shoes of Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy?

Wet.

Surveying the collateral damage from Hurricane Sandy in Old Greenwich, where three homes were destroyed by a fire, Malloy became a posterboy for GORE-TEX.

And we’re not talking Al Gore.

Malloy clutched the mailbox of one of the homes to avoid stepping in a large puddle.

His brown loafers seemed impractical, especially to Mr. Eastern Mountain Sports himself, fellow Democrat Jim Himes, the congressman from Greenwich.

Himes quipped, “I know what I’m getting you for Christmas.”
