Compare and Contrast
Tristero noted Bush's frat-boy antics at Catepillar yesterday as well, and points to a very interesting compare/contrast story:
John F. Kennedy was filmed accepting the gift of a cowboy hat while appearing at the Chamber of Commerce. He was urged to put it on so the press could take pictures. He looked at it, clearly decided it would be undignified for the president of the United States to do so. So he smiled broadly and said he'd be glad to pose in it, back in Washingon, the following Monday.
