Will Obama Have a Body?


That I know of, Doonesbury hasn’t ever represented a US President with a body. Instead, they’ve all been symbols or non-characters (the White House exterior with balloon captions). For example, POTUS George W. Bush is a now-war-torn helmet. (He’s been other things.) Dan Quayle (yeah, I know, he was a Veep) was a feather, presumably a quail feather. George H.W. Bush was a spark. More can be found here.

But now, with this past Sunday’s strip, it appears that Trudeau worshipslikes Obama enough that he may give him a body. Well, legs, at least.

It’ll be interesting to see how that plays out.
