When I’ve discussed him with my friends, I hear a lot of concern that he lacks experience, and is more talk than walk.
This is a man who has shown both in the US Senate and in the Illinois legislature that he can understand AND respect both sides of an issue, can find the middle ground, and can entice those with divergent viewpoints to sign on in their own interest.
It’s a rare skill.
Also, he IS a total policy wonk. He’s just way better than Gore is at not boring people to tears.
I encourage you to vote for Barack Obama in the 2008 democratic primaries.
