Farewell, penny loafers and power suits, there are new ladies shaking up DC. We are, of course, referring to the new fashion media focus on Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin and potential First Lady Michelle Obama. In what seems to be an overnight frenzy, both women are achieving celebrity-like status thanks to their fashion sense.
