12. I'm not sold on Obama yet
Has he ever been involved in a hard contested campaign?
He won his Senate against Alan Keyes in a year when my cat could have been elected as the US Senator in Illinois (provided she ran as a Democrat)
I'll be interested to see how cool he is under fire over the next year.

on note: I am registered in Illinois and I voted for Obama for Senate.
