So much for diversity in his cabinet. 4 of 6 were of small physical stature, if not otherwise. Huffington Post calls this Petite Power, and I noticed it too. Clinton, Rice, Gates and Napolitano
I noticed this too, but at least Hillary (who was first to the podium after Obama) had the experience to tilt the mikes down toward her mouth so that the from the camera view you could see her eyes and nose.
