Clinton Calculation


For anyone who might believe that there is anything NOT calculated about the public appearances and performances of the Clintons, let this be an example of the lengths to which they go in the way of advanced planning.  Handlers are seen here “sampling” a variety of her famed pantsuits to see how they look with the lighting in the Pepsi Center and the DNC stage backdrop.

By way of commentary, the two on the left wash out with the color of the backdrop.  And, as for the red one, it might conjure up too many notions of “red states” and then there is that whole spiritual realm thing that red associates with.  So, the choice was pretty obvious, t-sip orange, which is what she wore.

    Do you think it is t-sip or tea-sip? I tend to think TEA-SIP. But on with the comment.

    Wow, I love all the colors she had to choose from. I must say they probably made the right choice with the tea-sip orange because orange is a complimentary color to all of the blues they have on the stage.

    Alright, I’ll have to break in here.

    First, I think Leigh is right: tea-sip. From what I’ve been told in the past, it’s meant to imply snobbery. Of course, there is always the chance that I’m wrong.

    Secondly, that orange is actually not tea-sip orange. That is more of a University of Tennessee orange, or even Syracuse orange. Longhorn orange is darker, or “burnt orange.”

    Ok, that’s it. Just had to jump in on that one.

    love you guys,

    I stand corrected on both the spelling of term of affection assigned to Longhorns and to the shade of their color. But, I stand by the main assertion in the post that the Clintons are so calculated in the ways they appear in public that either they or more likely their handlers go to the lengths described in the original post and its accompanying photo, to make sure they are properly packaged, in this case, literally packaged.
