Politics and Presence

After 20 years in the wilderness, political, that is, it’s good to have called an election, even if it’s only the Iowa Democratic caucuses. Obama won. Given the size of his victory and his flourishing rhetorical skills (see the video below) I predict victory for him in New Hampshire.

After she shook hands with Rob Moyers and moved on, he remarked: “I looked into Obama’s eyes and he seemed sincere. Now, that looked mechanical. She’s like a robot.”

As for the video, it’s Obama’s victory speech to his supporters the night of the caucuses.
