Compare, Contrast, Then Smile

I really enjoyed this article in the New York Times by Sheryl Gay Stolberg. It starts out feeling like a light piece about the relaxing of the dress code in The White House. But by the end, it speaks volumes about the cultural and attitudinal differences between the Obama-Biden administration and the recently departed Bush-Cheney-Rove cabal.

Hi B2B -
Folks used to say they wanted to have a beer with George W. Bush. Blech!
But I would have loved an invitation to the Super Bowl party at the White House!
And in the interview with Matt Lauer, just before the game, I think that all American, just a regular guy side of President Obama really showed!
