Who is Barack Obama?

Is he a Chicago White Sox baseball fan? Sure. If wearing a cap makes one so.

John Kass in the Chicago Tribune describes Mr. Obama‘s painfully awkward failure not only to name a single player from his old favorite team, but the ballpark where they play. Sadly, this unfortunate little incident is a poetic illustration of the larger life and identity of our president.

We never really knew him, and what we did, or thought we did, hasn’t always been true. I’m speaking mainly of his political viewpoints and approach to politics (presented during the campaign as moderate and post-partisan; in actuality quite ideological and partisan), but also the personal background that shaped those beliefs.

I came across this and wanted to briefly share. No further comment is necessary, I think.
