Adam Tschorn, guest blogger, pokes some improv fun at the uncannily synchronized looks of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton:

Did you see the powder blue tie Obama wore that perfectly matched Hillary’s pantsuit?

How do you think THAT conversation went? Here’s two aides talking:

Obama aide: ‘Um, senator? We have Senator Clinton on line two. Something about your color story for tomorrow. (pause) No sir. COLOR, not cover. She is suggesting something in the blues but approachable.’


Clinton lackey: ‘Senator Clinton? I have the junior senator from Illinois on the line. He objects to baby blue because he thinks it is a subtle jab at his relative inexperience.’

Obama aide: ‘Senator Obama? Sir. You’ve just received a package here from the Tie Rack. It’s a tie, sir. With a note. It says, ‘I hoped for a tie, but thought you’d appreciate this one.’
