Rookie mistake

Terri Sewell has just been elected to Congress, the first-ever African American woman from Alabama. For an interview on CBS News, she fell into the red jacket trap:

The trap goes something like this: "Politicians wear red. I'm a politician now. Therefore I should wear red." But the red glows, brighter than her face or anything else around her. It takes over the picture until we can see nothing else. No jacket should do that. Hopefully she'll choose something less distracting before we see her on C-SPAN.
