Alyssia Finley on Obama
Last summer one of our interns was Alyssia Finley, a student at Stanford. She wrote a number of interesting columns for us on student life and political correctness at a prestige university today, and she still sends us a column from time to time. Here's her take on Obamania, noting that Obama's "inspiring" speeches are downers, describing problems in the U.S. as bigger and more serious than they really are, then casting himself as the only one who can fix things. Audacious, but a curious kind of "hoped."
