This is for my entertainment, not yours.
I hope WE can live up to the promises we made. More than anything else, and this is the number one reason I think Obama is truly a transformative politician, I have been amazed by the way people respond to his example: he is calm and respectful, so they stay calm and respectful. He demonstrates a belief in the power of individuals and communities to change the world, so individuals and communities step up to effect change. In some ways it doesn't even matter if you're right and he is a big phony. His supporters believe in him, and I believe that the model he creates for them makes them better people. I just hope they keep watching him, and that he keeps acting with wisdom.
