The latest pop culture comparison of the Democratic presidential candidates is that Barack Obama is a Mac and Hillary Clinton is a PC. It started out as a style comparison, with Doug Kendall writing in the Huffington Post how Obama is young, hip and inspiring, while Clinton is â€œlike that old-reliable PC that we keep on our desks.â€ But the New York Times reported that the analogy also works with the candidateâ€™s Web sites. Obamaâ€™s Web site is much cooler and more harmonious than Clintonâ€™s site.
While the comparison isnâ€™t flattering, Clinton can take comfort in that PC far outsells Mac. As the Times noted, â€œPC, no doubt, would win the Electoral College by historic proportions (with Mac perhaps carrying Vermont).â€
