The people marketing President Obama seem to be selling what everybody on Madison Avenue knows sells better than anything else: Sex.
The Obama campaign is being prominently represented by some of the nation’s hottest celebrities. That is, not just the hottest stars in the country, but the hottest looking stars in the country.
The old “Obama girl,” whose sexy video helped make Obama hip last election cycle, doesn’t even seem to know if she’s going to vote for him this time. But who needs her?
And who needs the dowdy Oprah Winfrey, with her incessant stuggles to lose weight? The Obama team, which relied on her so heavily in 2008, when she had the biggest show on the planet, has pretty much shunted her aside this year.
