What difference does his attire make? Plenty of presidents have dressed up and messed our country up in style. Kudos to them. He shouldn't be criticized for going for that business casual look from time to time. I don't know about the presidency (at this point in time), but I do know that Obama has the democratic party down pack. Anyone who says other wise is in denial.

Obama is a black whom many whites find reassuring, with his Harvard pedigree and law degree rounding out his half-European ancestry. If you take this in almost anthropological terms, there's a sense in which whites are more comfortable with blacks who they believe reaffirm them. Other whites apparently view Obama not so much as a black trailblazer but as a multicultural figure, with his racially-mixed parentage and childhood spent in Hawaii and Indonesia.
He doesn't have the composure, doesn't project the manly image needed -- he looks likes those skinny hyperactive kids in elementary school that run around and stumble on words when reading too fast.

Teachers and fellow students at Punahou say that Obama wasn't a straight-A student, but they had high expectations for him. One of his teachers, Kusunoki, who has taught at Punahou for 33 years, adds that "[he] was very gifted, and I knew he'd do great things. But this well? On this stage? I never expected that."

"There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs. It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."
"To admit our doubt and confusion to whites, to open up our psyches to general examination by those who had caused so much of the damage in the first place, seemed ludicrous, itself an expression of self-hatred"
"Even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart."
