…increasingly anarchistic voter, and I can’t help it. The man, Barack Obama, inspires me, and gives me hope.

I know I’m an idiot; the strong cynic in me will die very hard, not going gently into that good night. IOZ has it right, ultimately. But Obama will slow the steady circling of the drain we’ve suffered under Bush The Lesser.

I guess my (also strong) idealist side still holds some sway. The man (Obama, small “m” here) could actually be a really, really good President.

We’ll see. If there’s one thing I’m sure of, Obama is better than the alternative.
