Once again, in response to a current issue, we see Barack Obama being thoughtful, articulate, and honest--mixing specific policies with a rhetoric of compassion and understanding, in sharp comparison to John McCain's empty rhetoric and dishonest (and, increasingly, in times of crisis, dangerous) spin.
Obama is certainly elite when compared to McCain, who is merely elitist. The former means one of a very few. The latter means one who works in service of the very few.
Come on, people, open your eyes.
This election shouldn't even be close.
