The New Yorker Endorses (Surprise!) Barack Obama

This is a beautifully written piece. Want to feel good about our next President? Read it. It gives me hope. We can elect this guy, you know. We're better than the last eight years, better than the Gingrich Congress, better than Iran-Contra and NAFTA and Vietnam and Chile and the Missile Gap rhetoric that led to thousands of nukes waiting for terrorists to pick them up.

We are, after all, the country that invented the Peace Corps. The ones that put together the Marshall Plan, and aimed it at countries that five years previously had been doing their level best to enslave everyone they could. "We the People" has been a beacon for centuries, to everyone from the French revolutionaries to Nelson Mandela to Ho Chi Minh.

We can do this.
