An open letter to President Elect Barack Obama:

Dear Mr. Obama,

I'm sure you've already figured this out, seeing as your wife is a total babe and women swoon when you shoot hoops and you tied up the female vote lickety split, but in case it managed to elude your attention, I'll let you in on what we gals are thinking: You're kinda hot. In fact, you're our best looking prez since JFK and that means we're expecting a lot from you in the style department. That also means...

that it's time for your mirrored wraparound sunglasses, circa 1994, to go the way of your Urkel jeans. Your suits are well cut, your Windsor knots perfectly dimpled, and your shoes always well shined. But topping the look off with those sunglasses makes me feel like I'm looking at a cubicle jockey who wears his Blackberry on a belt clip and totes around a free Targus computer bag embroidered with a drug company's insignia. Sorry to break it to you, Mr. Obama, but those glasses have gotta go.

Your predecessor in dapper-ness, the always dashing Mr. Kennedy, helped make RayBan Wayfarers a hot commodity, and I think you could easily do the same for the aviator. I beg of you, Mr. Obama, do your chiseled face justice with a pair of shades that don't scream "era of Zack Morris." I've included a few suggestions below, in case you want to take me up on my offer...just something to think about, huh?
