This picture of Chelsea Clinton campaigning in New Hampshire Monday in a Canada Goose “Shelburne”, $750.00, struck me as a pretty apt symbol of what’s not working in her mother’s campaign. Canada Goose makes fabulous coats, incredibly warm, but they’re also expensive and are, for now, very stylish among Manhattanites and their ilk.
In Greenwich, a $750 parka would go unnoticed or, if spotted, be viewed as the choice of an economical shopper, but in New Hampshire, where Hillary was trying to overcome her image as a billionaire indifferent to the middle class, a $125 Carhartt would have been the wiser choice.
And I’ll bet the campaign staff never noticed or even thought about it. Arrogance got her nowhere.
