Senator Blanche Lincoln is headed into a primary runoff next week in one of the most closely watched races in the country. For her speech following the primary results on May 22, she chose a bright yellow jacket:
This bright primary color is extremely unusual for the Senator - her usual style is earthier and more muted. Ordinarily, I wouldn't recommend a change like this - the color has the potential to overwhelm her. But look at what her clothes have accomplished for her here! She is standing in the middle of a big crowd of people without a platform and we can find her easily. She looks bold, polished and important. This may not be a look that New York Magazine would recommend, but I'm all for it.
