RG45.4 Obama’s best and worst hopes

November 2nd, 2007 by dk

Combining two earlier ideas into one, I want to explore what Obama brings to the national conversaion and what could prevent that conversation from continuing past the spring. It’s not race and that’s important. It’s age. And they are connected. Because “he wasn’t there” for the civil rights struggle (or the similar struggle for women’s rights), he can talk about them without the angst that warriors often bring. That separation doesn’t decrease his credibility. It increases his clarity.
