Larry Lessig announced his support of Barack Obama for president. I agree with him that Obama truly wants to change how government works and actually believes what he’s saying with conviction rather than just following polls.
Minipundit also points out how Obama could restore the world’s opinion of the US:
When the mere presidential candidacy of Obama can convince a boy in Kenya who hasn’t even traveled as far as Tanzania that he, too, can become a U.S. Senator, that means something. His election – not to mention his policies – would provide America with soft power on levels that Hillary or Edwards simply could not reach. And that’s something voters should really consider.
Although I’ve been feeling pretty bitter about politics in general, with the media predicting that Hilary will win, and disgusted with the Democratic party for stripping Florida of their delegates, I really want to see Obama win.
