I hope you all did your civic duty and tuned into the debate last night to watch Obama stand firm against that other guy, what's his name? Tom? Jim? Whatever... no matter.
What did matter was that Obama rocked McCain in the wardrobe department. The overly orange patriarch's tie was one of the worst wardrobe malfunctions we've seen since Janet shared her boob with a certain Sunday event audience. That stripey mess was flickering all over the darn screen. Did Cindy help pick it out? Possibly. She herself was distractingly festooned with lapel pin ornaments.
Of course, the real winner of the debate last night (at least from this fashion blogger's perspective!) was Michelle Obama. When she first walked across the stage her dress looked like a saucy leopard print number, and I was a little concerned that the right wingers would scream "Scandalous!". However, when the camera closed in a bit, the pattern showed itself to be a perfectly appropriate floral print.
I know, I know; the politics are more important than the outfits, people. If you want the real news head on over to The New York Times, or watch the Silver Fox on CNN.
But before you go, let Obama show you his victory dance!
