Obama “Salutes” McCain

November 3, 2008

At a Jacksonville, FL, rally of supporters on election eve, Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama “saluted” his Republican opponent John McCain for his hard-fought campaign. As Obama spoke of McCain, he rubbed the left side of his face with his right hand’s forefinger and then his middle finger in a possible road rage gesture.* One is transported in time to Raleigh, N.C., where Obama gave a similar gesticulation when touching the right side of his face as he criticized his primary foe Hillary Clinton to a receptive audience.

Perhaps, Obama should stick to the old basketball “rattling of the keys” as a way of saying goodbye to his political opponents.
