Good, bad or indifferent, this has been going on since the beginning of our country and before. IIRC, Dolly Madison was quite the fashion plate back in the day, G. Washington was lionized, not to mention Teddy Roosevelt, or even more recently, that Hollywood-star and current-day Republican demi-god, Ronald Reagan. BO and MO are hardly the first nor the worst at this game.
