After reconsidering my political views over these several months, I've judiciously and provisionally decided to vote for Barack Obama in the California primary. Once politics is stripped of the fictive deontologies of both sides, it seems best for the nation and the world if we move to the left on many social and economic matters, not to mention foreign policy. What works for Western Europe should to some extent work for the US. Also, Obama stands a better chance than a certain other candidate at bringing back, if not civility, at least some thoughtfulness to the archipelago of our nation's political "discourse".

And yes, this is the most stirring political endorsement ever to grace the pages of ONB. Can't you just tell my deep and abiding enthusiasm for American politics?
