How Does Obama Stay Obama? March 7, 2008

Dave Winer’s talk with UC-Berkeley professor George Lakoff really was a home run:

Is the reason Obama did badly in Ohio (especially) because he now has too many handlers? That’s not a question Lakoff brings up, but it is one that worries me.

Regarding some specifics of what Lakoff said, I’ll reiterate that The Gore Years has written extensively on how the world might have been different if Iraq had not been invaded.

The Iraq war is the one, single reason the American economy is falling so fast.

It’s not NAFTA, it’s the war.

Side note. I sent a comment to Dave’s site:

Thanks Dave for this podcast. What’s neat about this podcast is that it is so unlike talking head TV where the interviewer is almost as much a part of the interview as the guest. You got out of the way and let the man speak.

Dave’s questions were few and intelligent. Much better than the blather you’ll find on any national broadcast of talking heads. I even appreciated the phone hanging up at the end.
