This Blog Endorses Barack Obama for President

I'm going to be working for the Obama campaign in Virginia today and tomorrow. If you're undecided, ask yourself, if all that the McCain camp is saying (and implying) were true, would the Washington Post, New York Times, the Economist and the Financial Times have endorsed Obama? Well, wake up and google it, they all did. We need change-- desperately. And our next president is going to have to do the equivalent of herd cats, and simultaneously twirl plates and juggle a watermelon, a cement brick and eleven balls of mercury. Perhaps an impossible task for any human being. But I for one am grateful that a politician as tough, intelligent, discerning, and open-hearted as Barack Obama has shown such passion and commitment for the opportunity to try. More anon.
