We spend a lot of time talking about Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain, and Sarah Palin's clothes on the campaign trail, but let's turn our eye to Barack Obama. Perhaps you saw him speaking from behind the podium yesterday in Pennsylvania not wearing a suit. Gasp! Instead he wore a leather jacket and jeans. Although he had previously been spotted in faded mom jeans while riding a bike this summer, he sported dark denim yesterday. He was spotted in the dark jeans in mid-July, once in August, and again yesterday. "I got a hard time from all sorts of blogs who said I looked like Urkel," Barack said at fund-raiser in Chicago in June. Awww, he's self-conscious. Just like us! But we confess we found his mom jeans kind of endearing, because they're just the kind of thing normal nerdy dads would wear totally oblivious to the fact that they're anything but fashionable. But more important: Barack reads blogs about clothes? What if he's reading this right now?! Keep the sneaks, Barack! A spot of nerdy dadness looks good on you. Besides, it makes you relatable.
