Every now and then you have to do something nice for your mother. My mother watches The View and Oprah. She very much believes in the new power of women. She pointed me to Senator Barack Obama on The View.

Here’s the part that killed Senator John McCain (who was also on The View this week) and Senator Hillary Clinton. Obama is simply a likeable guy. He isn’t stiff or wooden like Kerry or Gore. As a result, it is hard to paint him as an elitist like those others are trying to do. He talks openly about race and Reverend Wright.
