Obama Finally Goes To The Mountain (in Harlem)
If a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't Obama control his body language?
Here's Obama at President Clinton's office in Harlem...
Good start: Both men with hands in pockets translates as extremely casual; however, Obama seems to be cognizant of the former president's height and, therefore, feels compelled to accentuate his own...
Don't you just love President Clinton's bemused smile?
Next, something goes wrong: Suddenly, Obama crosses his arms in defense and pretends to smile (Note: genuine smiles include both the eyes and the mouth; here, Obama's eyes are the giveaway)...
Wouldn't you like to know what President Clinton is saying? It's obviously non-threatening because his thumb is pointing upward, and his hand is wide open.
Finally, Obama mimics the president in this "smile for the formal photo" moment...
And Obama keeps up his "Look at me! I'm tall" body language... while the president remains comfortable in his own skin. If the president stood up straight, Obama would be positively giraffing himself to appear taller.
Here's a hint, Obama: If the mountain doesn't come you, and you finally go to the mountain...
It helps to be fully engaged with said mountain.
Otherwise, what's the freakin' point?
Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:
Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
Here's Donna now...
