Los Angeles Times: Barack Obama for president

  • Our nation has never before had a candidate like Obama.
  • as the presidential race draws to its conclusion, it is Obama’s character and temperament that come to the fore. It is his steadiness. His maturity.
  • These are qualities American leadership has sorely lacked for close to a decade.
  • We may one day look back on this presidential campaign in wonder. 
  • We may marvel that Obama’s critics called him an elitist, as if an Ivy League education were a source of embarrassment, and belittled his eloquence, as if a gift with words were suddenly a defect.
  • In fact, Obama is educated and eloquent, sober and exciting, steady and mature
  • He represents the nation as it is, and as it aspires to be.
