Why Isn't Barack My Husband?

Doesn't he know I would happily move to Washington to be by his side while he makes important decisions for our country? Isn't he aware of how I would greet him every night with his favorite drink, a home-cooked meal, all while wearing a negligee? That I would gently stroke his head while he tells me his frustrations with the Beltway Bureaucracy? Alas...

I'll have to settle for the Barack Obama podcasts. Yes, my friend...he has a podcast that you can download from iTunes. They are short and intimate...like he's talking just to me! Seriously though, he talks in plain English about life in Washington and how Congress is or is not dealing with the issues of the day.

The best thing about these little chats is that he gives concrete examples of how he's dealing with said issues. He talks about the process of getting a bill passed, about ideas he has for education reform, etc. Real, tangible ideas. Can you imagine?

At first I was going to say that he was my husband but then I realized that I want to be the Allison Janney to his Martin Sheen. That would make me happy.

I'm the straightest man in America...


...and I heart Barack. Read his book. It's awesome. I didn't know about the podcast - I'm gonna have to sign up...

He is something special. Like a lot of people, I first became aware of him after his speech at the Democratic Convention. My mother, who is in her 70s, said after that speech, "I would vote for that man for president in a heartbeat."

Thanks for the heads-up on the podcasts, L. Britt, and for the book recommendation, K. Lance.
