<p>On Monday&#39;s NBC <em>Today</em>, 9 a.m. ET hour co-host Willie Geist actually tried to spin top Democratic Party surrogates like Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton mispronouncing the name of Iowa Senate candidate Bruce Braley as a boost to Braley&#39;s campaign: <strong>&quot;But now he&#39;s getting a lot of name recognition. Maybe it was like evil genius move, who knows?&quot;</strong></p>

<p>So his biggest supporters not knowing his name helps with name recognition? In the clip of the First Lady that was featured, she even went so far as to direct people to the wrong website: &quot;You need to elect Bruce Bailey to the U.S. Senate....vote.BruceBailey.com, that&#39;s vote.BruceBailey.com.&quot;</p>
