i am deeply disappointed by
senator barack obama’s decision
not to be present for the vote
on senate joint resolution 14.
i do understand that several
other would-be candidates chose
the same path — and i understand
the calculus here in play. i do
not condone such calculus — for
in addition to being a candidate,
he is also a senator, with
solemn, sworn duties to the people
of the state of illinois — and
he failed us yesterday — as in,
we, the people — we ought to have
seen better from him. he plainly is
capable of better than clever politics.
here endeth my rant. he still
holds my support as the one front-
runner i most trust to take our
party’s nomination, but i am
gravely disappointed that he
let “clever politics” come before
his sworn constitutional duties.
