‘Breaking Bad’ Star For Idaho Guv?

Otter's insistence that perennial fringe candidates Harley Brown and Walt Bayes be invited also was noted on the TODAY Show Friday, which drew "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston, pictured, into the fun with a suggestion that he'd be a great fit for Idaho politics. Co-host Al Roker introduced the segment saying, "So, political debates can be pretty dry, unless it's a political debate involving the Republican candidates for governor in Idaho.
