AFTER ALL, HE'S THE ONE HE'S BEEN WAITING FOR:

Obama's self-portrait (Mona Charen, March 11, 2008, Washington Times)

Barack Obama's words are often attractive but oddly concealing. His speeches are all balm and mood. It's all very well to seek, as Mr. Obama claims, to transcend old categories, to reject the "old politics." But then what? This graceful rhetorician leaves you wondering: Who is he really? What does he want for himself and for his country?

Poor Ms Charen, if you don't get that what he wants for America is himself, you'll never be inducted into the cult.

Actually that whole, "We're the ones we've been waiting for" thing makes perfect sense to me. For eight years now, progressives have been convinced that the country has gone astray and have been waiting for someone to acknowledge and correct that fact. Now they think they've found someone who will do it, and they're along for the ride.
