Late for the sky

Although it has been subject to some mockery, I love the video below of Anna Wintour’s pitch for dinner with her and Sarah Jessica Parker along with the Obamas. With such appealing figures hosting the Obamas, the video demonstrates that Obama has maintained the man-of-the-people touch that made him a rock star in the 2008 campaign.

I am starting a rumor that Wintour and Parker were the Obamas’ second choice to host the event. First to be tapped were George Soros and Sean Penn, but they were otherwise engaged. Their video would have beat this all to hell, even if this is pitch perfect. Surely the Obama campaign will reach out to them again if the RNC doesn’t cause second thoughts to creep in.
