Picture of a Picture
I just finished the film "W", and even if it was showing here in the cinemas for the past week, I never intended to fork hard-earned $ 12 to see it. Instead I saw it online.
It is an inspired story of the current US president and although it provides a glimpse of reality with real characters and real plot, the sensational side and angle have been provided some theatrical and cinematic rendition. Nonetheless, it shows how Dubya wanted to be part of history. How he is and will be judged.
It can't come at a better timing than this week's elections. He will be sitting for another 60 or so days, maybe camped out in Camp David or just waiting for Thanksgiving and Christmas to pass and off he goes to the sunset.
It is the Friday after the recent elections, and we see pictures of the newly-elected Prexy's pic strolling out of a gym with what could be a Blackberry Curve and Blackberry Bold. My wife will be proud as she works for them :). His mane covered with a White Sox cap and a Chicago Tribune rolled under his armpits. Am not sure if he had an Ipod to his ears while exercising or watching the news from his BBs. But yes, this is the man that the Americans elected, and this is the man that they can relate to.
Everyone is just praying that he succeeds. He owes his election in part to President Bush's unpopularity, and inherits the same problems we all face, credit crisis, unemployment and a rocky stock market and a possible recession.
