I May Have Drunk the Kool-Aid.
Note: I realize that calling for change itself is foolhardy. As one snarky commenter on the youtube site wrote: "Change? From what? To what?" A worthy point. But that is where our processes come in, yes? Debate, representation, discussion, compromise, enaction, enforcement, refinement, and more voters to the booths. Also, the man who wrote this is named Jon Favreau; he is Obama's chief speechwriter, and he is 26 years old. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/20/fashion/20speechwriter.html?scp=1&sq=jon+favreau&st=nyt
