I want one of his Centerclocks for my wall. He’s also got a nifty Rivers of the World map, and he’s the guy behind the NY Times’ Olympic Medals Cartogram and Presidential Polling graphic (which thankfully shows Obama in the lead in a majority of the polls).
Maybe he’s just a politician, and maybe he’s not that different from Hillary Clinton. But all rationalizations aside, Barack Obama is an inspiration to a lot of people. As an anonymous former Clinton administration official was quoted in the New Yorker:
When I’m with her, I feel she wants to impress me. When I’m with him, I feel he wants to know what I have to offer him.
Sounds an awful lot like another inspiring president.
