In fairness to both sides in the governor's race, I'm now taking a look at what the Democratic candidate's family wore to vote today. That would be the Angelides camp.
I believe they earn a bit of a dressing down for dressing so down, especially Julie Angelides and daughters Christina and Megan.
I kind of got the impression that they were heading to English 101 at Sac City this afternoon instead of the polling location at the Eskaton Monroe Lodge, also on Freeport Boulevard. Julie Angelides definitely dressed the part of co-ed in denim and big belt.
This, in stark contrast to first lady Maria Shriver's high heels and fitted dress when she voted down in LA LA land this morning.
I guess I was looking for something in-between from the candidates' wives. Not so fussy, not so frumpy. Perhaps a nice red dress and matching wrap - like the one I wear when it's time to pick a president every four years. It looks good with one of those "I Voted" stickers.
As for Phil Angelides, he opted for his usual uniform of a button-down shirt, blazer and khakis. Nothing to ruffle anyone's fashion feathers.
You're probably saying to yourself: "Who cares what everyone wore to vote?"
Well, maybe no one. But remember: You only get one chance to make a first impression - even if it's in a voting booth.
