obama in '08

i just decided to stop pussyfooting around and officially throw my support behind barack obama. i know hardly anything about him, but i just get this warm & fuzzy feeling from him, you know? next on the to-do list: read his books so i don't sound like a total idiot when people ask me why i'm for him.

but it's about more than "issues" or "facts". :) it's about optimism, and charisma, and warmth, and symbolism. those are important, too! and those are what will influence most voters, anyway. why do you think george w. bush won (twice)? not because of his stance on any particular issues. mr. and mrs. america just thought he seemed like a swell guy.

    it's always good to get informed about the decision you make after you make them rather than before you do.

    You're trying to tell us that you were a special admit, is that it?

    well, bush won twice (and particularly in 2004) because the democrats put up two of the most uninspiring candidates ever to run for president. maybe adlai stevenson and walter mondale were worse, but not by much.

    but bush, in pure charisma terms, has been a disappointment. people are flocking to obama, in part, because they want to have a president who can string words together effectively and rouse a little emotion here and there.
