The people marketing President Obama seem to be selling what everybody
on Madison Avenue knows sells better than anything else: Sex.
The Obama campaign is being prominently represented by some of the
nation’s hottest celebrities. That is, not just the hottest stars in the
country, but the hottest looking stars in the country.
The old “Obama girl,” whose sexy video helped make Obama hip last
election cycle, doesn’t even seem to know if she’s going to vote for him
this time. But who needs her?
And who needs the dowdy Oprah Winfrey, with her incessant stuggles to lose weight? The Obama team, which relied on her so heavily
in 2008, when she had the biggest show on the planet, has pretty much
shunted her aside this year.
