Two Campaigns, Two Images

Last week we saw two very different sets of Presidential campaign images.

First, Barack Obama was shown working his way through the Middle East and Europe, meeting with various foreign dignitaries. He spoke before 200,000 people in Germany. He seemed youthful, hopeful, energetic.

Then, we saw John McCain speaking to nearly empty halls, tooling around in a golf cart with Bush Sr., on the same day as Obama spoke to hundreds of thousands in Germany, McCain spoke to seven people outside a German restaurant (someone should be fired for that one), and prattling on in the cheese aisle of a grocery store.

"Campaign cleanup on aisle 3, campaign cleanup on aisle 3, please."
