McCain and Clinton: Limned Difference

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But, that was way back when people read pictures. We're not so graphically literate today.

Here's a photo I snagged from a Drudge Report story.

It doesn't matter what the story was about, except to Matt Drudge and his mother maybe, but this picture of McCain and Clinton is instructive.

We see them sitting together, smiling, and leaning into one another. They are obviously mutually friendly. They wear similar attire which is apparently military issue flak jackets. Perhaps there were snipers out and about.

Or, perhaps it's illustrative of the old saw, keep your friends close; keep your enemies closer.

What does the photo tell us about the two presidential candidates pictured here? Senator Hillary Clinton wears a kevlar combat helmet to protect her head from snipers. John McCain wears communications headphones allowing immediate access to swift and constant situational change.

In short -

John McCain (Republican) - ear to the situation, head tuned to news, knows what's going on.

Hillary Clinton (Democrat) - protect pretty little head and golden locks from snipers.

The life of Indigo Red is full of adventure. Tune in next time for the Further Adventures of Indigo Red.

Keeping your enemies close is wise... that way you can keep your eye on them!

I don't know, but I do believe McCain and Hillary are personal friends. I don't think this will affect his decisions if he becomes president, however I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
