Bush's Fashion Stamp: Blue Ties

Well, it didn't work on the political side, but President Bush has found bipartisanship in fashion.

His light-blue silk tie is now the rage on both sides of the aisle. Just last week, we saw two presidential hopefuls--Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain--each sporting one.

"It really lightens up a man's face, and he comes across as more decisive, but in a human sort of way," says Democratic consultant Donna Brazile. "Blue is the new red."
