I was not thrilled to read the headline, Obama: ‘Trayvon Martin could have been me’ People are already injecting emotion into this case enough without the leader of the free world putting on a hoodie and going on a march. But, of course, once I really listen to him, he always charms me and seduces me to his side with his rational, calm words. I love his way of talking about an issue with insight and sensitivity and maturity.
If this erudite thinker of a man can’t get things done in Washington, there is no hope for erudite thinkers anywhere. Or maybe just not in politics. Still not crazy about the headline though.
