Ugh, powder blue

Clinton and Obama wore (nearly) matching outfits at their Unity event this afternoon: her pantsuit and his tie were both, according to Politico‘s color-spectrum analysis, powder blue.


Powder blue, of course, used to be a UCLA school color, back when I was at USC. But the Bruins switched in 2003 to a different shade of blue, so I guess I can forgive the Dems for their use of what I’ve always considered a rather distasteful shade of an otherwise fine color. Still… for future reference, I’d recommend either Notre Dame blue or Newington blue. :)

Anyway, here are some more photos from the Obama-Clinton rally in Unity.

    Was Obama’s baby mama there as well? I haven’t seen her running her mouth lately.

    UCLA blue? Don’t you mean “Carolina blue”?

    “Obama’s baby mama”??

    Are we going to start hearing references to Cindy McCain as John’s “baby mana,” and Bill Clinton as Hillary’s “baby daddy,” too? Or do the Obamas get this special terminological honor all to themselves, because of their, er, suntans?

    Brendan – I am *shocked*, I tell you, shocked, that you of all people would stoop to such colour-prejudice !
