It's one thing for Matt Talbot to say: "I’m not ashamed to say I choked up a bit toward the end of Obama’s victory speech in South Carolina last night. This guy has charisma coming out of his ears." But I recently received an email from a friend whom I dearly respect, a faithful conservative Catholic who said that she has decided to vote for Obama, "because that will drive a stake through the heart of the 60s." I asked in reply: "How can you figure that? He embodies all the essential fallout of the 60s."
