If you’re going to take an edgy play from Us Weekly‘s playbook, then why not take it? Instead, Politico CLICK brings us this creamy vanilla item about two powerful men in dark suits and baby blue ties. It’s challenging to emotionally invest in an item like this. We might care a little if Editor Caitlin McDevitt had a fashion expert rate the ties and bluntly describe how they make each man look. We might enjoy it at all if Politico CLICK took a stance on who they think wore it best. Or better yet, do what Us does — go out and poll people and show the results. In other words, let someone actually win the question they ask: Who Wore it Best?
