G’Obama (thanks to JPK)

12 Feb


The self-described “kid with the funny name” is all in, declaring he wants to be the next President of the United States.

I’m pretty excited, really–both in terms of what he stands for and how I think he will appeal to voters. As I’ve written before, we all want hope. Bill Clinton spoke about hope for a better tomorrow. Ronald Reagan did it too. Rightly or not, we tend to make gut decisions in the voting booth, and a guy saying “I’m going to work to make tomorrow better for all of us” is going to get more votes than a guy saying “I’m going to raise your taxes.” (Memo to John Edwards: Recall the lessons of Fritz Mondale.)

So, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon and given Barack Obama’s campaign some money. I hope he gets the nomination and come January of 2009 he’ll be the first African-American President. But more importantly, I hope he’ll be a great President.
