Your Turn: Politics With A Personal Touch

Nyt-Candidate-Snapshot-May0

So, what do you make of this front page triptych in this morning’s NYT? (It’s titled: “Politics With a Personal Touch.”)

(Not to draw too much attention to this one fact, by the way, but notice the prominence given to the secret service coverage in the middle pic.  Bringing the dynamics of layout into the conversation, also check out — in this front page capture — how the story about Clinton’s Kennedy/Obama assassination remark appears just below and a write-up regarding McCain’s “robust health” leads alongside.)
