I read a great article about Barack Obama in the NY Times this morning, and I have to share.
It's here. Check it out.
This is the phrase that really got my attention:
The debate [between Clinton and Obama] was “orienting” because it exposed the very different orientations of the two — one toward tough-mindedness and resolve, the other toward transparency and dialogue; the one toward the peril that we face, the other toward opportunities we must explore. How you felt about the debate had to do with how you felt about the world.
He's more liberal than I would usually go, but the more I read about this guy, the more I think he's the answer.
