Thing I like #3 -- Barack Obama

You know, it's no secret that I am a giant supporter of Barack Obama (AKA Uncle Bob). There are many political reasons I could expound on, but right now I want to talk about the guy's classiness. Sure, he has trash talked McCain, but this is the general election, people! Also, in my humble opinion, he has hit WAY more above the belt than McCain. But anyway, I was really impressed with his response to the fiasco involving Palin's pregnant daughter. This was from a press conference today...

I have heard some of the news on this and so let me be as clear as possible. I have said before and I will repeat again, I think people's families are off limits, and people's children are especially off limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics, it has no relevance to governor Palin's performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. And so I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother had me when she was 18. And how family deals with issues and teenage children that shouldn't be the topic of our politics and I hope that anybody who is supporting me understands that is off limits.

Barack Obama is thing I like #3.

PS E and I got to see him live today!!
