I was just saying to lloyd that I am personally not materialistic. In the case of Mrs. McCain, she may or not be. Or it could be just socialite
conditioning. But you are right that anyone can be materialistic.
The point that I am trying to make is that if the McCain campaign wants the average American feel that they are on their side, then they shouldn't be
wearing 300k worth of clothes.
Now granted, I am not saying they should look terrible. Even get a good designer, they do have millions of people looking at them. But I think you can
be tasteful without being over the top.
I think cindy is a beautiful woman, and she really doesn't need it. None of the contenders do.
But these poor political wives are starting to be put into the same fields as celebrities, always having to look good no matter what. That I am sure
that it is getting to be a hard line to draw between practical/political and glamourous. How to look good and stay professional. And it is such a fine
line that is easy to cross. Me personally, I would find the scrutiny rather maddening.
The guys have it easy. suit. tie. suit. tie. suit tie.
LoLOL. Maybe that is why there are so many debates over the flag lapel pins. It seems it is the only fashion conscious decision the men can make.
Suit...tie. Ok, lapel pin? How does it look? Does it make me look fat?
ok, I need sleep. see you all later.
