Oy -- if a Hillary Clinton presidency will mean four more years of that creepy, Orwellian (or, more precisely, Rovian) position-the-photographers-so-they-get the-Leader's-head-framed-by-words-conveying-a-big-bold-abstract-concept nonsense, then you can just forget it.

Go here for a brief history of the Bush/Rove use of this trick.

(Source of the Hillary photo: this post at the New York Times Caucus blog. Compare the previous post -- yeah, John Edwards is trying to position himself as the candidate of working people, but the backdrop is just the logo of the labor union co-sponsoring the forum where he was speaking.)
