29. Thanks, but...
"There's always a big 'but'." --Pee-Wee Herman

I appreciate the story. I never really doubted that Barak is a decent guy.

Thing is, I don't doubt that Hillary or John or Dennis are decent people too. And frankly (please don't write me up for saying this, 'k folks?), I suspect that a several guys running over on the GOP side might not be averse to take a few minutes out of their busy schedules to do something fairly selfless, now and again.

These are people, not monsters. Some of them do a lot of douchebaggy things, some more disgusting than others. I'm glad you posted this to remind us that at the end of the day, while policy decisions can have either wonderful or horrible effects, the people making them are just people.
