Politics

Won Over, Made Up

The smartest Democratic politician since Bill Clinton. Faced with John McCain’s characterisation of him as haughty and out-of-touch, Barack Obama did just what he needed to: laid out clearly, compellingly and emotively why it’s not him who doesn’t ‘get it’, but his Republican opponent. There was policy here, and there was motivation, but most of all there was story.

Obama has more hurdles to clear than most candidates, but that, my friends, was something of a flying start.
