this man gives me hope

I must confess that I was, until last night, a Hillary Hanger-on. I was still having trouble letting go of her candidacy. But after watching this I jumped whole heartedly onto the Barak Bandwagon. His press conference about the (a) economic situation and the (b) proposed cancellation of Friday's debate was brilliant. Everything about him ~ grasp of issues, temperament, body language, attention to questions and willingness to answer in complete sentences (wouldn't THAT be a nice change!), the tone of his voice, his reassuring manner ~ won me over. This man is presidential.

The contrast between the guy who's in ~ as seen in last night's address to the nation ~ and this guy who wants to get in was stark. No more doubts.

POSTSCRIPT: Just saw this photo.

"Who is that guy and what's he doing in my seat?"

Thanks for this, I missed it! I so agree, we finally have a statesman who will be president. So impressive!
