From the New York Times report on Barack Obama’s huge rally in St. Louis:
Even Mr. Obama, who can wear self-possession like an overcoat, seemed taken aback.
Also in the Times on Sunday, Matt Bai’s magazine piece about Obama and white voters included this observation:
Obama was wearing his classic starched white shirt. (How many of those shirts does he have, exactly?)
Is Bai actually surprised by a politician who seems to wear clean shirts? Are there notable examples of recent presidential candidates who didn’t?
