Hah, awesome. 

Don't most politicians have this reptile-like ability though?

creepy, though not unexpected.

I'm pretty convinced that the '08 election can be simplified down to "Smiling Scumbag" vs. "Scowling Scumbag".

it wouldn't surprise me if at some point in his career he had professional pics taken, went to a image consultant to find out which smile was the best for his career, then practiced in front of a mirror till he could hit it every time....

Most likely.  Seems like a fairly wise career move, especially if you're the type (like me) to have very interpretable smiles.  Maybe his normal "honest" smile is lascivious or cruel looking, and he had to train himself not to do that.

Ill second that. I mean, didnt he run most of his campaign exploiting all that could be exploited thru means of marketing and publicists after all?

I mean, all politicians do what they can, but didnt his team take it a step further and exploited the internet means while others didnt? Or am i just misinformed?

Cue "There is a war going on for your mind"

That said, must you use the word "exploit" so much?  It implies unfair advantage, when really, everything the two main candidates did was well within what I consider fair game, if some of it was stupid or unproductive, it wasn't unfair.

He did, at that.  I've never found a politician so charming in my whole life.  He has the likability of a Kennedy, with the added bonus of not being one.

They had a thing like that for Paris Hilton. I think it was the same song, too.
