You need good hair

It really does all come down to having good hair.  Yesterday's campaign visual was of Obama speaking to (a mere) 9,000 people in a freezing downpour in Chester, PA.   The weather was so bad that McCain was a no-show for a similar Pennsylvania event.

Even Fox News noticed:  "As McCain Cancels, Obama Rallies."

Why risk a headline like this?  Obama in a downpour looks like a damp version of the same thing, albeit in sort of geeky bright white sneakers. But there's no charitable way to describe how McCain would look soaking wet, thinning hair plastered against ... well, you get the idea, and the footage would be broadcast in a split screen with Obama.  The side-by-sides would be devastating.
