With my golf game, I have an overarching saying about my philosophy toward the sport. “It’s not whether you are good, it’s whether you look good.
Politics sometimes is the same way. It’s not always about what a candidate says or does. It’s how they act.
Unless certain candidates really do have nothing but plaid shirts and khaki Dockers in their closet — or dark, conservative suit/dresses — I’m going to guess that one of the consultant contributions to the election this year is control over what the candidate wears.
That’s why I was interested in a Boston Globe article this morning that examines the clothing habits of the Bay State’s gubernatorial candidates and what statement they make.
