I have polled my friends and family, watched political coverage and ads, read blogs and reports and articles and op-eds, and finally, today, I think I’m convinced that Obama may actually be the guy for me. It’s strange that the tipping point would be what amounts to an endorsement, because I thought the only person out there who could sway me with his support was Al Gore. But it turns out, when Michael Chabon and his partner speak, I listen. And when they quote a Fitzgerald bit about negative capability that gets thrown around all the time up here, I feel bad for my lingering experience doubts.
The thing is, this probably isn’t that meaningful, because I’m still not against Hillary. I’d vote for a used staple if it was the party’s nominee and had a chance of winning the White House
