2. I Just Watched The Entire Interview.....

and came to the computer to make a post to recommend people watch it. It was such a "human" conversation. It was inspiring and depressing. It was compelling. It also made me keenly aware that Obama's detractors have to go out of their way to ignore the reality that is before their eyes about the intelligence and compassion of the man. It doesn't matter if you agree with his policies or not. The hatred and vitriol that were directed his way were based on something much more base and vial than simple political disagreement. Now compare the grace and intellect that were fully on display during this hour long conversation with the utter insanity that we are faced with on a daily basis from the current occupant of the White House and it is indeed depressing. 50 years from now or 100 years from now the true brilliance of President Obama will be better and more widely understood-for now we have the stark contrast between our best selves as a nation and our worst. If you have the opportunity, do not fail to watch this. Letterman was an excellent interviewer-Obama was great.
