21 questions (II)

  1. Once the embargo is lifted Aaron I’m hoping for a blow-by-blow, semi-live blog-style account of the great question debate. What questions didn’t make the cut? What were the arguments? Who wanted to ask what? Inquiring minds, etc.

  2. Mr Coyne
    You didn’t notice the colour/race of most of the cheering onlookers?
    It was and is all about a black man being the leader of the most powerful country in the world–
    which gives hope to all minorities and people who feel suppressed/repressed –including women, people with disabilities, the old, the poor, even teen-agers, of whatever race/colour.
    Yes, hope so nakedly displayed, can be disturbing (maybe especially to those who have no pressing need of it?)

  3. No, I haven’t already said that–maybe someone else?

  4. Andrew Coyne just doesn’t get it. Obama has reignited an interest in politics and democracy and grass roots participation never before seen. Did you not see all those people around the world celebrating the night he was elected? And all those beautiful faces expressing the hope of humanity with tears streaming down their faces.?
    Even tho I am 3 generations Canadian, I signed up and give my suggestions on the issues on their website and am willing to cross the border to participate in local meetings.
    We have spent too many years with political cons. This is the first breath of genuineness we have seen for a long time, if ever.
    Interesting, isn’t it that as he is elected all the corruption of Wall Street and the political life is being exposed.
    As I said in another post, I think Andrew is going through male menopause.
