Newsweek: Obama A Difficult Person To Know
More video from the folks who had full access behind the scenes. And I think I’m just going to post all of these because they’re really great little glimpses into the 2008 election.
While, I think it’s true that all Presidents have to make sure the American people see their humanity, with two beautiful young daughters and a genuinely intelligent and witty wife, I think Obama gets a pass on having to be too effusive.
Let’s remember, George W. Bush was full of goofy little one liners and “straight” talk, but people ultimately ended up really resenting him.
In other words, the era of “I’d like to have a beer with that guy” could be over.
We shall see.
