56. More than any other candidate, Obama has chosen truth over expediency...
This the hallmark of integrity and leadership and a rare characteristic among politicians.

He's told us that WE have to make these things happen, because it's true.

He's said it's going to be hard, because it will be.

And he may have lost points, and even states, for having not joined Hillary and John in the "Gas Tax Holiday" pander that seems to have been effective.

During the campaign he's got to temper brutal honesty with some finesse and so far is doing pretty well, I think.
