A Foray Into Politics

I like Barak Obama. I voted for him because I though that, of the two candidates we were offered, he was the best option.

I don't understand, however, the almost cult-like following that has arisen around him. I just read about Oprah talking with a whole bunch of celebrities about what Obama's election has meant to them.

I'm sorry, but I didn't realize that Justin Timberlake was terribly influenced by what happens in Washington.

And Oprah had this to say about Obama's election:

"I feel like I am better because of his being elected," Winfrey said. "And
I think that the country is going to be better. I feel like it is a beautiful
thing, and we all start to see ourselves differently, the possibility."

He hasn't done anything yet. I think he has a lot of potential, but wait until he actually does something substantial to make those kind of judgements.
