Design: D.C. Mayoral Campaign Websites
Reading in the NY Times just now about the Washington D.C. Democratic Party mayoral primary and ended up surfing over to the two leading candidates websites:

Impressed by both. Actually preferred Linda Cropp's, though Adrian Fenty won the primary 57% to 31%.

Incidentally, I''m currently reading Malcolm Gladwell's Blink and it looks like "youth and vigor" (with a dash of masculinity) and the image thereof played a major part in this campaign. Although not necessarily an error in this case (I probably would have voted for Fenty, too), you could probably cite this as a textbook example of the "Warren G. Harding Error". Or, perhaps more aptly now, the "George W. Bush Error".
