I don't have any political commentary on this site (at least not in this post).
I've never shared this story, but the first time I ever heard of Barack Obama was a campaign sign in Illinois in 2003. I recall looking at the sign and thinking "This guy is running against Jack Ryan. There's no way a guy named Barack Obama is going to win. He doesn't have the right kind of name for a politician." Little did I know his middle name is Hussein - and it didn't matter. He Ba-rocked right into the White House.
