Toni Morrison (she of the "Bill Clinton is the first black president" debacle which set us back at least 75 years), has endorsed Rocky! This is the first time she's ever endorsed a presidential candidate. From the letter she wrote to Sen. Obama:
In thinking carefully about the strengths of the candidates, I stunned myself when I came to the following conclusion: that in addition to keen intelligence, integrity and a rare authenticity, you exhibit something that has nothing to do with age, experience, race or gender and something I don't see in other candidates. That something is a creative imagination which coupled with brilliance equals wisdom. Our future is ripe, outrageously rich in its possibilities. Yet unleashing the glory of that future will require a difficult labor, and some may be so frightened of its birth they will refuse to abandon their nostalgia for the womb. There have been a few prescient leaders in our past, but you are the man for this time.Yeah buddy! And for some additional Obamaporn (not like that, guys!), here's a new campaign poster. They have a good designer! Click on the pic for a link to the Obama store.
