So Barack Obama is going to run for president? Or maybe not. He's too young, too inexperienced. He should stay in the Senate. Or, he's charming and visionary and the perfect anti-Hillary and a wonderful communicator who just happens to be black. He should run.
I don't have a firm opinion. Though when I saw his DNC speech I turned to my wife and said "That man is going to be our next president." So maybe I'm a prophet.
Hilzoy over at Obsidian Wings has a fascinating rundown of what Obama has actually accomplished in two years as a freshman senator in the minority party. I am a little surprised, and if anything it increases my sense that Barack is a guy with real future as a politician, and that I am glad he's on our side. Whether his future is in the Senate or White House I don't know, but based on what we've seen, he seems likely to do a great job wherever he is.
Oh, you should go check out the link, if only to see the little picture in the upper-left of the screen. Hysterical.
