163. In the 2008 presidential race, people who gave money to Barack Obama
likely felt they were investing in the idea that he would bring relief from the last dreary 8 years. The amount they could give -- and many gave more than they could easily afford -- was not the point.

Their wish for responsive, representative government was the point. And they felt in large numbers that Obama was worth their 15 bucks, or their 1500 bucks, whatever they sent.

The 3 guys from the Orient showed up with expensive gifts to What's-His'-Name's birthday, and the kid with the drum just played a song.

But don'tcha just bet it was a damned fine song he played.
