Will Obama Run?

As a mom of toddler twins, I rarely set aside time to watch any specific television programs, but today I will carve out a precious few minutes of toddler time to watch "The Situation Room" on CNN which will feature speculation on potential '08 presidential candidates.

My hope is that the discussion will reveal new information about the intentions of Barack Obama, perhaps the most exciting political candidate to hit the scene since JFK. He has hinted he is seriously considering running. I can't wait to hear his decision.

Why? His political views so far seem moderate, his rhetoric is reasonable, and his debating skills are exceptional. He exudes a warmth and genuineness that make his undoubtedly high IQ unintimidating. He has real potential to win a presidential race, but more importantly he has real potential to be a great President.
