Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

obama...style over substance...

the rhetoric is good, but the will isn't there, a bit like kerry, all the right moves, but with a certain authenticity missing, a fire-in-the-belly thing i guess...

he's quite likeably intelligent, and as fran astutely said, makes a good inkblot test, but i definitely get the feeling that what you see is not quite what you get, and that there is more symbol than reality going on.

his success speaks more for america's desire to have done with racism than his own personal qualities, imo, though as pols go, he's better than the average....damned with faint praise.

as future messiah/saviour/superman...don't think so.....

it would be really good to be wrong here...maybe he's the type who would find his will when really presented with the full responsibility of a presidency, which he ironocally might attain, due to the right's terror of having a woman as 'big daddy' (does not compute!!!).

yeah, heay, ok, so he's kinda cappucino coloured and talks all eddykated, but at least he's a MAN....

<snarque>

to me he's still a boy, playing nice to please, in love with his own charisma.

my thirty-year old daughter is lovestruck with him...there will be many like her, i reckon-

let's hope they vote in great numbers!
