The last blog talked about losing the poker issue in the RNC platform. I said
At the risk of reopening this discussion, it seems clear to me that Obama will find a way to allow poker players to play online and have the government take a piece of the action. After all, it is the sensible thing to do, and, with all of the other qualities in him that I find admirable, and yes, I was there at Invesco last night for a speech that left me no doubt he is ready to lead this country, and was among the most powerful pieces of oratory I have heard in 55 years on the planet, the one that stands out is that he will do sensible things, and abandon the faux moralism of these past 8 years. So, vote Libertarian if you feel you need to. Give me someone who has a brain in his head and a massive heart in his chest. Do I think he can do everything he outlined last night? Of course not, no one could. Do I think it is likely my taxes will go up? Probably, but that really doesn’t matter right now. This country has become a global embarrassment on so many levels under this administration, and my children and theirs cannot afford any more of this. I want my country’s leader to be smarter than I am, with exactly the skill set that Obama brings to the table. And that’s my two cents.
I think David Brooks pretty much sums my enthusiasm for your hero.
