But Obama drank Bud Light? Which is more troubling, the possibility that that the choice was merely a cynical move by a PR team determined to connect with, for lack of a better demo-term, Joe Six Pack, or that the President may actually prefer the stuff to any other American beer? Bud Light's fine if it's at a music festival on a hot day, or it's what you can afford, or, of course, if you simply like it. But a worldly man of considerable means can do better. A friend wondered if perhaps he was drinking Veuve Cliquot in a frosty mug and his people simply said it was Bud Light. I'm going with that one. J.R.
