It’s hard to listen to this and not like the man.
I’m not an Obama supporter, but I think that he’s the best the Democrats have to offer. Sure he doesn’t have much experience but considering what decades in Washington does to people I don’t know if that’s really a bad thing. (I’ve decided that doing the devil’s work for a lifetime can be read on your face. Ted Kennedy used to be a good looking man, now he looks like a cross between Jabba the Hut and the poop monster from Dogma. And he isn’t the only one.) We could do a lot worse than to have a smart honest well-intentioned man in office (and have more often than not). We could sure use some new ideas, the old ones are outdated and the world keeps changing faster and faster. And the guy sure can give a speech. Be a nice change of pace from the smirking and mangling of the language that passes for a presidential address now.
