So I noticed it had been a while since I wrote anything really about Barack, so I thought I would put out a few comments from others about the Senator that I’ve come across.
Here you go:
“He walks into a room and you want to follow him somewhere, anywhere.” – George Clooney (who by the way is going to speaking at a dinner in Geneva in support of Obama in just a few weeks)
“I’ll do whatever he says to do…I’ll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear.” – Halle Berry
“Everything’s going to be affected by this seismic change in the universe.” – Spike Lee
“This is not a campaign for president of the United States, this is a movement to change the world.” – Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD)
“I have thrown myself into a new world—one in which fluffy chatter and frivolous praise are replaced by a get-to-the-point directness and disciple-like devotion…Then, in a moment of divine intervention, he saw me…grabbed my hand, and gave that brilliant smile of his. I literally said out loud to the woman next to me who witnessed my good fate, ‘I’ll never wash this hand again’.” – Samantha Fennell, who left her pretty hefty job at Elle Magazine to work for the campaign!
“Politics doesn’t even begin to describe it. A visit to an Obama rally is a pilgrimage.” – David Wright, ABC News
“…followers willing to wait for hours on end to hear him speak have been crowding out huge concert halls and sports arenas to get a glimpse of their new progressive avatar and drive long distances to obtain the Obama darshan or to simply be in his presence…Many even see in Obama a messiah-like figure, a great soul, and some affectionately call him Mahatma Obama. – Dinesh Sharma, Harvard PhD
“Many spiritually advanced people I know identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve.” – Mark Mortford, San Francisco Chronicle
Yeah, I know, almost makes me want to tear up all over again. But no, not yet. The road is long, and far from over!
