Obama-lovin' late

I bumped into some people and they asked why i haven't blogged in a while. I stared at them with disbelief that they knew i had a blog, much less read it.

Well, i'm almost stunned that Obama won. I thought that when he beat Hillary, he had it in the bag. So that's why i'm not stunned. But i get the shivers at thinking that he actually won. A facebook friend of mine, which means he knows people i know but i don't remember the dude, Khari wrote a wonderful article about how and why i'm awe-struck. Couldn't have said it better myself, and i think i'm a good writer.

Recently, also on the Obama wagon, i read that Obama will have 48 appellate court seats to fill. The reason there were so many was that Bush couldn't push through his ultra-conservatives, and Clinton dropped the ball. you can find the rehashing of the same article if you search for 'obama' 'court' and 'fill'. This, i am excited about.

I wrote earlier here about Obama's thinking about the courts and strategy, which basically said that civil rights movements should look to creating legislation, and not the courts, to get their way, much like the conservative movement. I also told people that i was excited to have Obama as president, not only because he's black but because he brings to the presidency the subtle and profound thinking of a constitutional-law professor.
