Obama-inspired food and drinks are really starting to get on my nerves. It all started when a coffee place by my office started pushing an “Obama Blend” of beans sourced from Hawaii and Kenya. Then Obama cookies, and cupcakes on exhibit at a very good museum. And now his face on bread.

I watched Obama’s New Hampshire speech recently, when he conceded the state to Clinton in the primaries. I wanted to remember how far we’ve come since last January, when the “Yes We Can” he’d been using in front of smaller crowds for years really caught on as a part of his national campaign. It was just as good to watch in hindsight, and very much a picture of the man, even the politician. But not the damn cookie.
