Trial and Error

Babes for Hillary

July 20, 2007 8:36 AM

This presidential campaign of 2008 is officially the campaign of the underwear.

You might have thought it was the YouTube season, the user-generated primaries, the Internet debates.

But the consumer is definitely in control and the consumer is wearing very little but underwear.

Take for instance the well-known videos of Obama Girl strutting in short skirts and panties, then facing off against another barely-clad gal in the Giuliani camp:

Now, Hillary Clinton has earned her lingerie support in a video dubbed “Hott 4 Hill” that’s been viewed more than 600,000 times. It features rising online star and television host Taryn Southern who croons about how she “likes [Hillary’s] hair and the shape of her derriere.”

She continues, wearing apparently the requisite costume of bra and panties, with lines like: “Let’s put a hot chick in the oval office” and “I know you’re not gay, but I’m hoping for bi.”
