Is Barry Blitt’s Hillary/Obama/red phone New Yorker cover that obvious or not? How much is it editorializing about the politics, as opposed to hypothesizing about the potential scenario itself? And, with the kind of racial and gender tension this campaign is stirring up, what do you make of the bedfellows analogy?
All lurkers and new readers especially welcome.
