What A Bizarre Graf

Tuesday, May 27, 2008
" What a body man does depends on the politician. Senator John Kerry's aide for his presidential race in 2004 was dubbed "part butler, part buddy." Bill Clinton's aide when he was president said their relationship sometimes felt more like that of an old married couple. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has a body woman, the efficient and glamorous Huma Abedin. On NBC's "The West Wing," President Josiah Bartlet treated his body man, Charlie Young, like a son."

-From an article on Obama's body man. OK. It makes sense that they would want to convey a range of approaches. But, umm, one of these things is not like the other. As much as some would like to believe it, President Bartlet is not real.

    PrezBo now has a body man who wore a PhD robe on stage at commencement.

    Kerry's guy was very very cool.
