So. So. So.
I think the interview went really well today. Cross your fingers for me, everyone.
Energized from my potential success, I dashed from the Wilson Center onto the metro, and made it to campus in record time, where I got in line to see Barack Obama. The line was moving forward at a decent clip, so it was almost foreordained that the arena would reach capacity when I was still thirty feet away from the door.
Undaunted, I headed to the library, where I made my way into Media Services, and watched it live on a screen there. As a consolation prize, I was able to leave as soon as the talk was over, instead of being locked inside the arena, as were most of my friends.
Barack Obama is certainly charismatic and an excellent speaker who can deliver a riveting speech filled with agreeable generalities. And that's the problem with him, as far as I'm concerned: all the makings of a good leader, but no discernable stand on any issues.
And then I went home and ( watched the State of the Union address. )
That will be all.
