“I might be fuckin’ forty, but you’re fuckin’ forty-one”

“Barack Obama turns out to have a positive genius for making moderation sound exciting” – Gail Collins in a NY Times Op-Ed, Hillary’s Free Pass

There it is.  That is why i want Obama to be president.  Because if we’re talking theory i’ll pile on all my commie-pinko-fag ideas, but deep down inside i’m moderate and i can’t help it (i’ve tried).

On another note, it’s a wonderfully written and fairly insightful op-ed.

    I don’t think Barack Obama is a moderate… although, I’m totally digging him for president in a huge way and I might secretely have a politically moderate side feigning for super left progressive!

    that’s awfully sneaky of you ;)

    as someone whose political opinions lean to super-left-progressive, i think almost all of the liberal politicians are moderate.

    so i suppose the point i meant to make is that we ought to be thinking in a very progressive way, but extremes and sudden movements don’t work well in policy so we need moderates who lean “our” way in order to make progress.
