I like Barack Obama. I like the way he articulates his ideas. I like the conviction in his demeanor. But most of all I like the fact that he wants to play fair and win an honest battle.
I chanced upon this quote recently:
“I have said before and I will repeat again, I think people’s families are off limits. People’s children are especially off limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. So I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories.”
“You know, my mother had me when she was 18. How family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn’t be the topic of our politics. I hope that anybody who’s supported me understands that’s off limits.”
I think in this man America will get a true leader. His policies might be unpopular but his effort will be genuine. I hope he wins.
