Since she won the Republican Senate primary, Sharron Angle has hired a new ad agency and redone her website. Critics say she's also softening her rhetoric. Journalist Jon Ralston called it a "political makeover." Is she reshaping her image for the general election? Will it appeal to more voters? Where have we seen these political makeovers before? And how do they affect elections? We talk to local campaign consultants, plus a professor who recalls Richard Nixon's "makeover" decades ago. What do you think about candidate makeovers?
