Obama the Orchid
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.)
