I loved watching Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. It was a thing of beauty. I’m neither a chess fan nor a tennis fan, but I get how people could make comparisons to those kinds of games of strategy, even to boxing, where Ali’s rope-a-dope overcame the brute strength of his opponents.
Despite some significant accomplishments, many of us have been disappointed with Obama for appearing too ready to compromise with people who are blatantly trying to destroy him, even if it means dragging the country down with him. But now Barry’s back in campaign mode. His mojo has returned (along with the two Davids (Plouffe and Axelrod). Now if only we could do something to make sure a mass amount of voters in swing states won’t discover they’ve been knocked off the rolls on election day.
Meantime, enjoy this:
