"But there simply is no denying that extra kick. As one reader put it to me, in a way, it's not even about Obama, per se. There's a vast amount of positive energy swirling about that's been held back by the armies of BushCo darkness, and this energy has now found a conduit, a lightning rod, is now effortlessly self-organizing around Obama's candidacy."

Call it the FDR factor.

The more I read about that most enlightened of all American presidencies, the more I have come to see that it was FDR's personal charm and magnetism that allowed the intense, almost desperate hopes of the Americans of that time to find an outlet that changed everything.

Me? I'm the poster-boy for Good Government types. Just good, fair, egalitarian policies, please.
They can be stated by a little elf of a guy with funny hair (Kucinich) for all I care.... if it's good, progressive policy, I'm excited.

But this Obama thing coincides almost exactly with what I have sensed in my FDR studies.

The right person can help set us free to do the heavy lifting and coalesce into greatness.
