Scattered speculations and gathered snark from a tenured prole
Wouldn't this photo be a great starting point for the official portrait of our next President?
Hell yeah it would, even better than those of him stylin' in a cowboy hat!Sometimes photos like that, though, raise my fears that Obama's just too cool for the powers that be to turn things over to him. Seriously, I think he might represent a kind of shutting out, or pushing off center stage, of a whole class of stuffy, wealthy, insulated, white folks. They might consider the prospect of such a dramatic cultural and even political shift too drastic to let it happen. I sure I hope I'm just being paranoid.BTW, nice blog! I'm glad Ortho's rec got me here.
