Kevin Drum Still In The Cult Of Obama
BARACK Obama is vying to win again in 2010. He think he needs one billion dollars. But Mother Jones blogger Kevin Drum says all The One need to is stand in a room with each of us while.
So what should I think about this? If it had been my call, I wouldn’t have gone into Libya. But the reason I voted for Obama in 2008 is because I trust his judgment. And not in any merely abstract way, either: I mean that if he and I were in a room and disagreed about some issue on which I had any doubt at all, I’d literally trust his judgment over my own.
No, not because Obama is privy to more secret information. It’s because he’s just the better guy:
I think he’s smarter than me, better informed, better able to understand the consequences of his actions, and more farsighted. I voted for him because I trust his judgment, and I still do.
How’s that for an insightful press talking truth to power?
