Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Which Candidate Sells the Most Bling?

The Village Voice has a piece, How to Wear Your Vote, on D.C. jewelry designer Ann Hand, who has been creating rhinestone pins for presidential nominees since 1996. I guess cool, but the best part is that she keeps track of which nominees sell the most pins. As of right now the scores of those still in the race are:

Clinton: 190
McCain: 246
Obama: 648

WOW! Now, I could have a lot of fun finding as many stereotypes as possible admist the results of which candidate can sell the most bling (and speculate why certain others cannot), but I'll leave that up to you. Feel free to share!

Obama has sold more bling because he has the black vote and black people like bling a lot. Is that what you're looking for?
