I will follow you to the ends of the earth


isn't he dreamy?

Because when the reporter asked him if he believed in God he quoted Borges, for chrisssakes:
I offer you that kernel of myself that I have saved, somehow -- the central heart that deals not in words, traffics not with dreams and is untouched by time, by joy, by adversities.

That, and he's not afraid to admit he inhaled.

Mr. Senator: I'm yours.

p.s. I should probably add that I've heard him speak on policy issues and he's got me there too.

From the brand spanking new Men's Vogue, September/October 2006 issue. And yes, as a matter of fact I *did* buy it because Barack Obama was on the cover.

Yes, he IS dreamy and I love his mind too! Oh, I hope he can be our president!! I also love that he has been campaigning for our hopefully next Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick.

agreed -- my prerequisite for crushin' is a brilliant brain backed by rock-solid character -- obama's got it in spades. *swoonin'*

He gives me hope that this country could just reach its potential in my lifetime. Not to mention the butterflies in my stomach, and slight catch of breath... I am going to see him when he comes to speak at Elliot Bay in Seattle. What to say??? What to wear???
