The Eyes and Hats of Texas
A photo and comment in the Texas Observer caught my eye:
that man looks damn good in a cowboy hat!
While a good photo alone isn’t enough to get the nomination or the presidency, a bad photo can really hurt, as Michael Dukakis well knows. That goes for TV images as well. Walter Mondale put it this way after his defeat.
I think you know I have never really warmed up to television and television has never warmed up to me.Barack Obama, the man who looked good with the hat in the Texas Observer photo, drew a crowd of ten to twenty thousand in a light drizzle in Austin. Video here.
A recent poll shows Obama winning against Giuliani, McCain, and Romney. The same polls show Clinton and Edwards losing to Giuliani or McCain, though both would beat Romney. A lot can happen between now and when the primaries start, but Obama is looking good in more ways than one. Imagine Obama carrying Texas. It would be really hard for the GOP to put together 270 electoral votes without Texas. Obama-Richardson just might be able to carry Texas.
Your Personal Note:
Barack Obama looks great in a cowboy hat! Much better than the current resident of the White House.
