Smoke Your Way to Victory

The suggestion that Obama should give up his efforts to quit smoking in order to appeal to blue collar voters is officially cute.  But can you imagine the outcry from the prissy bloc of Democratic voters if the future president were caught on camera smoking? He would be corrupting the youth! So I don’t think this is the sort of thing that would ever happen because of political calculation.  (For context, I’m a staunchly anti-anti-smoking non-smoker).
