arma virumque cano (et alia)
Do not lose hope. I see Obama as a statesman rather than a politician.
John Amato is great guy, crooksandliars is one of the best political blogs around.I sure haven't lost hope in Obama.He isn't even president yet. I cannot expect any politician to be what I want, but he so far is so much better thatn any alternative.Do you know that Amato was a very big figure as a studio and touring musician?...he plays sax.He was figure in the music industry for quite a while, promoting talent.He was forced to give up his professional music carreer because of a health issue and started blogging...
Mud, Yes, statesman rather than politician. My "losing hope" was mainly a joke. The dripping insincerity of Reagan and Clinton does not manifest in Obama at all, at least as far as I can see. I'm hoping that the reason for this is not just that he's a better "politician." We'll seen begin to see.Micro, Thanks for that background on Amato.
