Would his candidacy have survived a YouTube moment of that event if he hadn’t in fact left? We can only wonder at his forward campaign planning.
And yes I did notice Obama is left-handed. So I believe is Senator McCain, or so I surmised from seeing how they took notes at one of their debates.
I also note that he has read all the Harry Potter books (‘Accio Presidency’ would explains a lot!). And that his favourite TV show is ‘The Wire’ which plug, if it encourages more people to dig out the DVDs of this neglected masterpiece, could help focus minds soberly on the immense domestic problems that still swirl in racial currents in the USA.
(1) Obama is of course constitutionally not yet the President-Elect. That legal status only comes after the ‘meeting’ of the Electoral College in early December. For a people allegedly in thrall to the worship of an Ancestral Document the Usa-eans can be brutally pragmatic where prime time play is concerned.
I made that point to the gf the other day and got called a pedant! I think he should be called the President-presumptive.
