commented on Obama Thanks His Campaign Staff
Awwww, a tear in his eye! So sweet.
It's true that his campaign and presidency has jolted political energy into sections of the electorate that just didn't have it before -- c.f. so many people so surprised that the high minority and youth turnout of 2008 was not a statistical outlier, but a lasting change in the (presidential) electorate. He's good, but I think that demographic shift, that enthusiasm and involvement among young and non-white voters, is real hope and change.

What is this candy corn taste that all the marketing keeps referring to? Candy corn tastes like corn syrup and food coloring. That's all. It's not flavored...
(not trying to disparage candy corn -- I love it, I'm eating it right now -- but really, guys)
