If Obama can bring capitalists and communists together, surely he can help heal the partisan divide.
By the way, how’s this for a prescient comment, from back in November of 2006:
Despite my disappointment with Barack Obama’s recent stance on Wal-Mart, I still think that the Democrats would be insane not to run him in 2008. When people like Steven Levitt are swooning over his eloquence, you know you’re on to something. Besides, monkeys would fly out of my butt before Hillary ever won a national election. The entire religious right is convinced that she IS Satan, you don’t think they’d turn out in an election?
Not to jinx things, but I think those monkeys are still being held at the gate.
