Obama the Orchid

by Sean Hackbarth

Sen. Barack Obama’s authenticity is slowly eroding. The idea that Obama has been carefully crafting his image as America’s savior made the first paragraph of Maureen Dowd:

Barack Obama may make it to the Rose Garden, but he’ll still be an orchid. For all his attempts to act like a sturdy American perennial, he’s a genuine hothouse flower, and everything he is and does is cultivated.

How long will it be before people view him as a black Bill Clinton? (And if he won that would make him the first black black President.)
