After months of speculation Barack Obama has formed his exploratory committee.
His web site is here.
You can buy stuff here.
Personally, I’d thought it might be best if he ran for governor of Illinois in 2010, after Blagojevich had created enough pent-up desire for real change. Obama would then get executive experience, and then run for President in 2016…But the thing is that he needs to strike when the iron is hot. Now seems to be the best time for him, with Bush leaving office in 2008, and the Republican party having done such a wonderful job botching the War on Islamic Terrorists, the War in Iraq, Medicare, and the Federal Budget.
So climb aboard the Obama Express!…And watch for things to get ugly. Afterall, this is politics.
