I would wait before reading too much into it. It would be a social error for those precariously perched atop our cultural ladder not to nab a photo op
with the promising young politician. If said promising young politician's ethnicity causes those who photo op with him to look progressive and
enlightened in the public eye of the unofficial capital of our nation's largest blue state, so much the better for them.
You've got to get on his side in public. If you don't like him, just support somebody else more on the down-low, and then when he starts falling
behind in the primary you say that you still really like the man on a personal level, would be thrilled to see him get a cabinet spot, but feel an
obligation to put your money behind the candidate who the voters are favoring in the name of opposing the war.
Barack will find out who his friends really are in late January and Early February, because I think Clinton will be more efficient in winning the
all-important NH Primary, at which point anyone who doesn't really believe in their candidate is going to jump on the bandwagon for the front runner.
