Seems people are so quick to want to jump on anything that is said that might can be perceived in a way that will "knock them out of the park." Granted, I am pro-Obama, and at first, I kind of cringed at what he said myself at how it would be perceived. But when I heard his speech and he elaborated on what he meant, I also realized we are all so used to being spoon-fed watered down pablum that when we get some meat to chew on we don't quite know what to do with it. That's why I admire Obama and he is head and shoulders above HC or MC. They're so stuck in the same rut that we've dug by spinning wheels over and over and over again. He gave us meat to gnaw on when he gave his race speech and there were a few who just couldn't seem to "get it" and sadly still need to be spoon fed the pablum. It was a speech that was supposed to bring out the adult in us all. And I see this issue on bitterness is going to be the same way. He stretches our understanding and is bold enough to not wallow in that same rut. It will be a huge, tragic loss if this country kills the opportunity to give him a chance.
That's my opinion.
