I was watching Obama speak today on CNN during the question and answer session at the closing of the Fiscal Responsibility Summit. I noticed that a gentleman stood up an talked with Obama and he was wearing a purple tie and a matching purple scarf! (Actually, my TV showed it as pinkish but I still found it weird. Thanks to Starseed for pointing out that it was actually purple!) I remember thinking that it was really weird that he was wearing a SCARF at a function at the White House.
Those of us that know the story behind purple might think of a certain Lavender Lad? Check out the video HERE (he shows up at about the 55 second mark):
This gentleman’s name is Andy Stern. You can read more about him on Wikipedia HERE.
I just thought it interesting that purple showed up front and center. Obama even made the comment, “Nice scarf, by the way” to laughter and smiles all ’round.
