I have found it interesting that Obama has been thought about as a possible candidate in 08....Tom Oliphant made a strong point about that in late June on Hardball and Joe Klein did in a Time article. Oliphant seems to think that those who will argue about the past will go donw in defeat...Hilary, Kerry and the like..and that the door is open for someone with legitimacy and autenticity...a new face..with new ideas... He seems to think it could be Obama...and while others kept saying he had little experience, Oliphant said that was more to his advantage than not. Klein thought that it was a large possibility especially since he was traveling back to Africa to his roots later in the summer and then publishing a book with his beliefs in it in the fall; sort of something to build on. I find it interesting...but I wonder if it all might be too soon??? OR the fresh air of leadership that America needs????
