Mr. Almost President

Posted in Politics tagged , , , at 11:09 pm by Katharine Lackey

While focus has exceedingly been on Barack Obama’s recent foreign trip, the New York Times is quick to point out that both Obama and McCain have their own far-reaching faux pas.

While Obama has stood on a podium with a faux presidential seal and adorned his jet “O-Force One,” McCain gave a speech looking back on his first term in office and recently began giving radio addresses every Saturday.

It is unclear when the two presidential candidates will hold their first state dinners, spend their first weekends at Camp David or welcome this year’s N.B.A. champions, the Boston Celtics, to the Rose Garden.

Oh, wait, neither of these guys has been elected yet.

The article is extremely interesting and I cannot do it justice by paraphrasing it — so go read it!

Also, read the Times Opinion piece by Frank Rich, which also touches on the same subject.
