    Oh, yeah. Totally bonkers.

      HRC doesn’t work as Aristotle? Or Obama not Platonic enough?

      Oh well. I guess it’s time to stop buying my meds from those online pharmacies.

        Dude, I was just kidding. I couldn’t recognize HRC or the second picture.

      • Obama is way too pragmatic to be Platonic. Now, maybe if there were a famous photo of…hm…William James with Margaret Fuller? Except that the internet has just informed me that William James was 8 years old when Fuller died, so no such luck.

        The colors really do make a nice echo in those two shots, and HRC’s hand positions are so odd, it makes total sense that one image would call out to the other.

          If only he’d been pointing up, though…

          It’s probably good that he’s not Platonic. As I recall, Plato’s attempt to dabble in actual government didn’t work out so well.
