Obama to Feel Wintour’s Wrath?
Remember what happened when Hillary Clinton crossed Anna Wintour? Right. She felt The Wrath. When Clinton pulled out of a Vogue cover shoot at the last minute, Wintour was reportedly fuming and took Clinton to task in her editor’s letter last February. Later, she called her “mannish.” And then Clinton lost. Well, Barack Obama’s staff better start doing some backpedaling if they want to stay in favor with the bebobbed editrix.
According to the New York Times, “an updated list of Obama fund-raising events, emailed by the campaign to supporters Tuesday evening and shared with a reporter today, includes a September 9 launch party at Charles Nolan studio of ‘Runway to Change with Special Guests Sarah Jessica Parker & Ann Wintour.’” That’s right — Ann Wintour. An Obama spokesman tried to laugh off the misspelling: “It was either a typo or the extra syllable would have thrown off the haiku we were going for.” Right.
