Impact of Looks on the Campaign

Eyebrow-Raising Political Analysis — Do the Looks Have It?


While we're breathlessly awaiting Liberty's big text from Obama to see who he picks for Veep, Bella says it's maybe the "pluck" that matters most. Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine was making the rounds, stumping for Obama this weekend, humbly demurring talk of a #2 slot and showing up on Meet the Press. While he was conducting official business, his brows were the object of scrutiny on NPR's Wait, Wait . . . Don't Tell Me!

Brow expert Eliza Pertrescu bashed Kaine's brows saying, "his eyebrows are definitely too feminine . . . his eyebrows are too manicured; whoever did it made him look almost like a woman." She also dished on the candidates arches as well. It's official — every aspect of the campaign has been scrutinized. With breathless attention to Obama shirtless and Kaine's eyebrows questioned, are male candidates finally getting the attention to looks that Hillary faced all campaign? Do a candidate's looks matter?
