The power of imagery - and Barack Obama

This is one in a long series of posts which tend to crop up at times during which political people are engaged in building their public profiles. I imagine the New Yorker will be just delighted with the semi-hysterical response their mgazine cover which features both Othe Obama's in mildly satirical poses, has got.

The would-be president, who likes to be compared to JFK - John Kennedy - won't be too unhappy either. Why? Because it allows him to define what he clearly isn't. And he is doing this early, well ahead of the John MCCain's Republican attack dogs of the fall.
