So, when Obama gave his major speech on race, he was flanked by what, 129 US flags?
And now from Politico, when the Obama campaign hits some more big bumps on the trail, Obama the candidate clings to his flag pin.
It's not surprising then that Obama gets bitter, he clings to a "substitute for true patriotism".
UPDATE: I admit error - in his major speech on race, Obama had just eight flags behind him. It only felt like 256.
