Word on the street is that President Obama is hip. Of course, this brings up that age-old question. What is hip?
Also, and more to the point, hipness by it’s very definition, is fleeting. Hip today, passe tomorrow. Remember when spending all Sunday with The New York Times was hip? Seems like years ago, doesn’t it? Reading the Sunday New York Times hasn’t been hip for years (except perhaps in Cafe Med, in Berkeley.)
For the moment,then, for Obama’s sake, let us just ponder the question: what is hip?
