Tell You What

If five years ago, you had pulled me aside and suggested that in 2008, the leading candidate to be President of the U.S. would be an intellectual who teaches Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago, I’d have thought you were raving. If you then said, “Oh, by the way, he’s Black,” I’d have figured it had to be a Republican neo-con — no way could a liberal Democrat galvanized the US electorate. I’d also have been dubious about the Republican party nominating for vice-president someone who pals around with avowedly anti-American secessionists, or that a Not Ready For Prime Time comedian and writer stood a decent chance of being elected to the Senate from a midwestern state. This has been a strange election cycle.
