Hope for the future of my country

I cant ask for much more than that

Why do i have hope? Is it some policy wonk thing? a sense of relative security vs Palin and her Armageddon harlotry? Is it that so many good people are breathing for the first time in 8 years?


"I don't consider this to be a good format for me, which makes me more cautious. I often find myself trapped by the questions and thinking to myself, 'You know, this is a stupid question, but let me … answer it.' So when Brian Williams is asking me about what's a personal thing that you've done "that's green", and I say, you know, 'Well, I planted a bunch of trees.' And he says, 'I'm talking about personal.' What I'm thinking in my head is, 'Well, the truth is, Brian, we can't solve global warming because I fucking changed light bulbs in my house. It's because of something collective'."

THAT is why i have hope. (more behind the scenes stuff here)

I very much want to purchase the print version of Newsweek and read the whole thing. The excerpts I've read so far are fascinating--and the one you posted had caught my eye as well.

it really is the most intriguing reporting of the entire election cycle... it's neutral and comprehensive and fascinating - and when the last bit is published it'll serve as fodder for a long 2008 post mortem conversation
