Someone Like You For President

howard fineman at newsweek lays out ways that obama could fix his image:
I don't even know if you are a White Sox fan! You're always talking about the chatter in the "barber shops." Take us to the one you go to. We've all seen the movie, and it was a wonderfully endearing one.

here's another thing they think obama should change:

You should fire whoever allowed three guys in Abercrombie & Fitch shirts to stand behind you at your big post-Pennsylvania rally in Indiana. You don't need Abercrombie & Fitch—you need Smith & Wesson
good grief people. do we really want the next president to come to your town and behave like you? do we really need to know what baseball team a presidential candidate is for?

or do you want someone thoughtful, brilliant, who's ready to take on the challenge of not only cleaning up bush's mess but fundamentally changing the way things get done in washington, someone who might actually get something accomplished as president for a change? someone who has proven himself capable of rallying millions of people to a cause.

we got george bush because voters thought they could have a beer with george. he wouldn't have a beer with you! neither would hillary!

and please, all of you hillary supporters backing her because she's a woman, that is not a good enough reason to elect a president. hillary is just wrong, a game player, a divisive person. she didn't get to be a candidate on her own merits. she's here because of bill. pennsylvanians chose hillary because of bill. and when you vote for hillary you won't be getting a woman president, you'll be getting a clinton dynasty. it's time to come to terms with that.
