Obama is a man of first-class intellect and first-class temperament. But his character remains highly suspect.
So says Charles Krauthammer in the WaPo. Give me a break. If there was ever a politician whose character seems steady and virtuous, it is Obama. You can't honestly look at his biography and come to any other conclusion. Obama rivals Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford in his character, while at the same time matching the charisma of Reagan, Clinton, and Kennedy, the intelligence of Nixon, the courtesy of George H.W. Bush, and the political skills of L.B.J. Have I left anybody out since 1960? (Actually yes, the current White House occupant, who shouldn't have been President.)
Obama has the best combination of traits we've seen in a potential President in many decades. I think we're talking here about a turning-point-of-American-history kind of President.
