David Brooks writes on Obama today:
- There are reasons to think that, among Democrats, Obama is better prepared for this madness.
- Obama is an inner-directed man in a profession filled with insecure outer-directed ones.
- Like most of the rival campaigns, I’ve been poring over press clippings from Obama’s past, looking for inconsistencies and flip-flops. There are virtually none.
- Obama also has powers of observation that may mitigate his own inexperience and the isolating pressures of the White House.
