Are 'Bosoms' a Winning GOP Marketing Tactic?

Potential First Wives Scrutinized

By Published on .

Boston Herald columnist Margery Eagan asks a very provocative question:

Does the heaving bosom play well among Bible Belt Republicans? Among New Hampshire primary voters? How else to explain, as debate week begins, the bursting out all over by GOP front-runners' wives? What's with this ample - and aging - display of decolletage?

I can't tell if she really means to be a scold, but it's a funny read all the same. You should also check out the poll to the right of the column in which 61% of respondents are claiming that the appearance of the presidential spouse has no effect on their vote. Riggghhhtt.

In presidential politics, every thing has a marketing angle.
