Election 2012

Romney Declines to Participate in Nickelodeon Q&A

John Kerry last candidate to turn them down


First Big Bird, now Nickelodeon — what's up with Mitt Romney and kids?

GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney celebrated last week's "victory" at the first debate in Denver — at which he promised to cut off Big Bird's funding — by telling youth-targeting Nick News that he would not participate in Nickelodeon's long-running "Kids Pick the President" special.

It's only the second time a candidate has declined to participate.
