Obama, again

My head still agrees with my original rather lukewarm support for Obama: I quoted Patrick Nielsen Hayden as saying "He’s not an insurgent; he’s the standardbearer for a faction of the country’s political elite."

And yet. The fact that an African American is president of the United States, and that not one of his names, Barack nor Hussein nor Obama, is European -- that's amazing. And strong magic.

Sliding down the stars again;
Playing in the sea again;
Swimming in the heart again;
Singing to the breeze again.
