Imagination and hope are at the core of liberal politics.
To work for a better future you need first to imagine that better future.
This is why I find the message and the campaign of Barack Obama to be of substance.
While I believe that Senator Obama is discussing specific issues, the bottom line is that policy experts can always be hired.
In politics, the specialist should work for the generalist.
Politics is about policy. But it also about representation, choosing sides, and a vision of the future.
Senator Obama represents a future I want to be part of.
Don’t shy away from voting your hopes.
Don’t let people tell you that imagination lacks substance.
Hope and imagination are things we should never allow anybody to denigrate. They are among the best aspects of our humanity.
