Obama – what are the details?

By January 11, 2008politics

Some people say Obama is inexperienced, that he’s strong on rhetoric, but weak on details.  This thoughtful post by a philosophy professor about Obama (created over a year ago)  is worth reading.  Her post suggests that Obama’s best skill may not be his speaking ability, but his ability to forge true bi-partisan solutions to thorny problems. 


P.S. If you appreciate my observations, you might want to check this out.

    Interesting post. Last night on Bill Moyers Journal (PBS) he interviewed an African-American scholar, Shelby Steele, who just wrote a book on the politics of race and why Obama can’t win. His point was the we do not really know what Obama stands for – he is merely a blank screen upon which we all project our wishes and hopes on for a transcendent racial experience. Obama, being the conciliatory non-threatening black, plays on that. See this link: <https://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/blog/2008/01/diversity_of_opinion_within_th.htm>

    Not sure how much of that I agree with (I am a solid Edwards girl) but it is fascinating how deeply he strikes a chord.
