I could not be happier that Obama came out the winner in last night's caucus.
Here's what I love about him: He did not have a burning desire to become President. He hasn't spent his entire career with his eye on that prize. He repeatedly said that he had no desire to run for President; he gave in only when he could no longer drown out the calls for him to run. Why does that fill me with hope? Because unlike the other candidates who HAVE worked toward the Presidency all or most of their careers, for him it's not about EGO. He has no ego. And if he did, his wife would knock it right out of him; she laughs at his new-found celebrity and she's referred to him, on the record, as "snore-y and stinky." How refreshing is THAT? I believe that he says what he means and means what he says. His attitude is "Here is who I am, all of it, good and bad, take it or leave it." He's not going to compromise his beliefs just to win the Presidency. When have we EVER had a candidate like that?
