So, Kennedy’s speechwriter is writing for Obama.  Somehow it seems strange to me that the man is still alive – that he must be impossibly old.   I wonder how old he is?

This guy expands on some of my misgivings about the Obama campaign:

– Obama is raising irrationally high hopes for a politician.

– Obama has an absolutely enormous ego.  This isn’t necessarily bad – most politicians do – except that he also has this bizarre compulsion to appear modest.  Like he has a reaction formation to the idea of having a big ego.  This gigantic blind spot seems very weird and somehow possibly dangerous to me.
