The Frisky TV: Could You Date Someone With Different Political Views?

There’s an interesting story in the New York Times today about a happy household with widely different political views — their front yard sports signs for both John McCain and Barack Obama. You may have heard of them — California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (a Republican) and his wife, Kennedy family member, Maria Shriver (a Democrat). “I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system,” Shriver said. “That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn’t.” A couple weeks ago, we decided to ask people on the street just how capable they would be of being with someone with different political views — their answers may surprise you.

Slideshow: Political PDA!

With all the hullabaloo over Barack and Michelle Obama’s much watched fist-bump on Tuesday, we started thinking about how it compared to other political public displays of affection. Who could forget the never-ending kiss at the Democratic National Convention between Al and Tipper Gore? Some people are still holding back their lunch. Republican Presidential nominee John McCain has a PDA pattern of his own — at every rally he make sure to thank wife, Cindy, then gives her a polite kiss on the cheek. For others, as well as another photo of that fist-bump (we couldn’t resist), click after the jump… Keep reading »

Michelle Obama Has Sweet Fashion Sense

So to preface this post, I want to make sure to convey that a woman’s style (or man’s style for that matter) or lack there of, should never be a topic covered by political pundits. It was mega annoying to hear Chris Matthews and the gang analyze Hillary Clinton’s blazers in the same breath that they discussed her health care policy. Though Michelle Obama isn’t running for office, we couldn’t help but notice she’s got some serious style that definitely brings to mind Jackie Kennedy’s fierceness. When she fist-bumped Barack on Tuesday (a moment which made me think these two probably have a vibrant sex life and frankly also made me salivate a little), I was like, “Damn, is she wearing a studded belt?” I’m sorry, but that is just cool. So, with that in mind, I decided to see what other fashion inspirations come courtesy of the possible future First Lady. Three looks, and how to get them, after the jump… Keep reading »

Barack & Michelle Obama Share A Fist Pound

Barack Obama basically clinched the Democratic nomination for President last night and before he gave his monumental speech (he’s the first African-American to ever win the nomination for President of the United States), he and his insanely awesome, hot, purple-clad wife Michelle (we told you purple was on the up-and-up!) shared a fist bump. For some reason, this made me squeal in delight. I never realized how romantic and respectful and mutually appreciative and loving a frat-tastic fist bump could be. Could it be the new peck-on-the-cheek? Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Reggie Love

Mmm, mmm, mmm Reggie Love. The ladies love Reggie Love. But who is Reggie Love? He’s Barack Obama’s “body man”, his personal aide who shadows him on the campaign trail, plays basketball with him every primary day (he was once a star on Duke University’s basketball team), and has the inside info on what the Presidential candidate likes to eat. But unlike most assistants who go unnoticed, Reggie has caught the eye of reporters, including the NY Times, who profiled the handsome 26-year old, as well as Obama supporters on the campaign trail. During pep rallies you may hear plenty of cheers for the nominee, but there’s also been plenty of cat calls (“Reggie! Reggie! Reggie!”) for the 6’5 hottie — um, anyone know if he’s single?

    What Are Hillary And Obama Doing?

    The Presidential (Fashion) Race

    Last week, fashion writer Hadley Freeman critiqued Hillary Clinton’s wardrobe. This week, she takes on the male presidential candidates’ sartorial choices. There aren’t as many options for men, but the cut of a suit can suggest a lot.

    “Look at McCain, striding around in his boxy blue suits, single button always done up to cover the paunch, ties always just that little bit too wide,” Hadley writes. “This man could not look more establishment if he went around doing secret handshakes and butt-slapping Karl Rove.” In contrast, “Obama does not feel the need for such sartorial alpha-male armor and instead shows off his slimness. This is not a man who would engage in phallus-waving drinking matches with the boys down the ranch on a Saturday night, one suspects.”

    All politics aside, we love how Obama wears a more modern cut. Otherwise, he might look like a 15-year-old kid wearing his father’s suit. [The Guardian, U.K.] Keep reading »

    Blood Lines: The Jolie-Pitt-Obama-Clinton Family

    Every once and a while they publish these silly reports that show, through an extended family tree, just how famous people are related to each other. Last time the media latched on to a story like this, we found out Dick Cheney and Barack Obama were related. This time, the news is a lil’ better for ol’ Barry, as it seems he is a distant kin of Brad Pitt! Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is somehow related to Angelina Jolie. Umm, question: how can we get our hands on this funny little blood line determining gizmo? We’d like to find out the likelihood of ever receiving a “Happy Holidays From The Jolie-Pitt Clan” card.
