From Daily Kos: Barack Obama: Tone, Truth, and the Democratic Party

Thanks to Jessica for sending this. I'm in the middle of something, so I don't have time to properly assess my thoughts of this post by Obama, but let me just say that I respect the man a lot for posting this and generally agree with what he's saying: if we're going to move the progressive agenda forward, we have to learn to compromise and accept the viewpoints of others, rather than becoming insular and punishing those who don't fall in with the party line every time. I have a lot more to say about this, I just don't have the time. Please do read it, though, it's a very important message from a great politician.

I agree that we need to moderate on some issues and stick to our guns on other issues. We need to bring this country back together.

I really like Obama. I hope he runs for President at some point in his career.
