My father said Jackie Robinson wasn't just a great ballplayer, he called him simply A Great Man. I watch Barack Obama handle this campaign and I'm struck by more than just his talent and intelligence and dedication to doing right. I'm struck with his dignity in the face of insult.
The media is purposefully setting up a political Armageddon in the form of the cultural showdown between Obama and his Hopers and McCain and his Haters. Potentially sky high drama, sky high ratings and sky high casualties.
