Barack Obama is only human

He may look like a cool superhero or superspy in this photo, but the Democrat running for President of the United States, Sen. Barack Obama, is only human, and he has yet to claim otherwise. However there are opponents who'd like to dehumanize or demonize him and supporters who deify or idolize him.

Journalist Steve Hart of The Opinion Mill wishes to do neither. Hart asks people to do a reality check and remember that Obama is, after all, a politician who can feel pressure and who will also make deals. The writer points readers to some of Obama's "gameplaying," regarding wiretapping and telecom immunity but also declares he will vote for the Illinois senator instead of John McCain because he wants us all to escape the Bush era.

Obama in shades picture is from Michael Shaw's Reading the Pictures blog, and I think Shaw got it from BagNewsNotes.com. When I saw the photo I thought maybe Obama's too cool to be president. Hmm. ... Nahhh.
