The Obama Brand. All Glitz, No Guts

Desiree Rogers was the original Obama brand champion but she's been consigned to the ash heap of Obama history, now it's Anna Wintour and her blinkered ilk, Runway to Win!:
Anna Wintour is becoming quite the fashionable fixture on President Obama's campaign team this election season.

The Vogue editrix hit Chicago on Tuesday - flanked by supermodels Iman and Chanel Iman, designer Rachel Roy and Obama campaign manager Jim Messina - for an evening of haute fund-raising at Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios.

Wintour was on hand to preside over the Windy City debut of the "Runway to Win" collection, a line of Obama-themed clothes and accessories by designers like Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Beyoncé & Tina Knowles, Tory Burch, Tracy Reese and Narcisco Rodriguez - several of whom are favorites of First Lady Michelle Obama.

But what's the point. Where's the plan, now that we've probably slipped into recession again. Foreclosures up in Chicago. Violent flash mobs targeting tourists and doctors. Look down from your skyscraper window, Messina.

And how's David Axelrod going to spin a big bunch of zerO this time.Axelrod ’94: Bush looked “out of touch” by … talking up a bad economy from the golf course

The president's going to Ohio today. Already the optics look bad.

Even the glitzy are abandoning the brand.

P.S. Romney ad, Boehner prebuttal.
