I wish I could like Barack Obama

I wish I could like Obama. He appears as a fresh face in politics, speaks well, communicates with ease, and claims to be a hope for change. (I say claims to be a hope for change, because I doubt actual change can come from one man.)
But along with his past deals in state politics and overall lack of experience, he just keeps showing that he is just a common politician.
As posted on CNN and reportedly lots of blogs Obama says one thing and does another. Sen. Barack Obama voted for a federal surveillance law that he had previously opposed and vowed to help filibuster.
Please don't get me wrong, I don't like McCain either, because I think he was crushed by his own party in 2000 and went a little loopy. Hey, those are the choices for the next President.

That surveillance bill vote hurt my feelings. At first, i had the same feelings about his experience. But then i watched his campaign, how it understood the 21st century and reached a viral level, while running against the oldest candidate in history. I'm going to attribute that not just to charisma but also to an instinctual ability to select his team. Proper companions as the mark of a great man.
Speaking of which look up his wife a bit. She is an amazing woman. Might give you pause.
