Kate Greenaway is one of my favorite childrens illustrators, along with Tasha Tudor. You do have to turn to literature to explain the Obama character. Hopefully it will help persuade people who think.

I posted a few days ago about the problem with conservatives who are looking back with longing at President Reagan and not looking forward to see what we face if Obama is elected.

Ending the very long post I referred to my favorite author, Jane Austen and compared her two main characters in Sense and Sensibility, the sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. Elinor used her common sense when she spoke of her "esteem" for Mr. Edward Ferrars.

Marianne fell for John Willoughby without using her head.

He of course, broke her heart. I see Obama as a Willoughby. I just read an article by Maureen Dowd tonight comparing Obama to Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. Think she reads me?

Laura Lee - dare we credit poor Mo with that much good taste? Hmmm!

In any event, my take on this whole thing is that it isn't over just yet. Some of Bill Clinton's recent remarks have been not-so-veiled references that make one wonder, as when he opines something about being "Constitutionally qualified" for the presidency in one interview. There has been some mild internet buzz about the circumstances and locale of Senator Obama's birth.

Call me paranoid, but I'm wondering if the devil's own have some final ploy up their sleeves. Wouldn't surprise me.
