Michelle Obama wasn't about to let Sarah Palin stay in the fashion spotlight forever. Much like the famous The View
dress, Ms. Obama's latest not-so-designer duds are causing a frenzy. Pictured here, she donned a very wallet-friendly H&M dress on the campaign trail in Detroit. (H&M, when will you offer online shopping already?!) On the flip side, Cindy McCain's astronomically-priced convention ensemble was used by critiques to argue that the McCains are out of touch with the average citizen.
Aside from the fact that it's nice to see outfits on TV that you can actually afford, do you care how little (or much) the candidates or their wives are spending on clothes? Do you think it reveals how they (or their spouses) really relate to the average American? In the current financial crisis, do you think it's wise for candidates or their families to display copious amounts of wealth?
