Goodbye to All That
4 January, 2008
A while ago, someone pointed me towards an essay about why Barack Obama might be the right presidential candidate for right now. I read the essay and agreed with many of its points. I especially agree with the idea that many democrats are afraid of being democrats and this makes them appear to be disingenuous. Per the essayists thinking, Obama doesn’t have that baggage due to his youth and unique upbringing. As I said, many points in the essay rang true to me when I first read it. When I re-read it after listening to Obama’s fantastic post Iowa Caucus speech, it’s ringing even more true.
