Several things just finalized and solidified my support for Barack Obama. I know this isn't the most widely read journal or anything, but please take a look at this (its really just the tip of the iceberg of good stuff about Obama), pass it on to anyone and everyone you think could benefit from it, and post any comments here you want to talk about any aspect of things politically.
First, Obama's main strength as a leader is the intelligence with which he approaches every issue, and the lengths to which he goes to ensure that he gets it right
. As an example, when it came to crafting technology policy, he didn't talk to random lobbyists or Microsoft execs. He talked to Lawrence Lessig
. This even got him an incredibly rare endorsement from Randall Munroe
, who incidentally summarizes much of my opinions regarding Obama quite nicely.
Second, Obama is currently the target of Carl Rove-esque tactics from Clinton. This worked for Bush for eight years, and you know its bullshit. Pay close attention when people say things! See this video
for a good perspective.
