Phenom

Barack Obama attracts a crowd. Its a year away from anything and he bringing out huge crowds. I'm being chatted up about him at my dentist office and overhearing him being excitedly talked about at my gym. I am attempting to maintain some sort of cynical detachment about it, but the possibility that the man represents is exciting.

We had our own "Obama" candidate here in Massachusetts. Deval Patrick was elected governor (over a weak Republican opponent and after Mitt's shenanigans) after promising the same kind of change that Obama offers.

Patrick has so far been a great disappointment.

So, yes, stay detached.
