Have a giggle as we enter the weekend by reading Mark Mardell’s latest love poem to Obama.
It strikes me yet again that poorer black Americans have infinitely more patience than those who are new to economic hardship, (Mmm……is he trying to say w-h-i-t-es?) and they don’t expect change to happen overnight. But they, too, await results. There is little doubt that Mr Obama’s image is not all it was when he was elected. What is fascinating to watch is how much the upcoming elections force him to become another sort of president still – either more accommodating or more political and tactical.
Waugh, it’s all so unfair. How’s that hopeychangey thing workin’ out for you, Mark?
