We've Come So Far

h/t Brendan

Wonkette has some great footage of Stevie Wonder performing at the White House last week. It's a reminder of just how far we've come in only six weeks. Just think, it was '93 when former-President Clinton had Soul Asylum perform. MTV did a great piece on the performance. A younger Wolf Blitzer and Andrea Mitchell make the clip worth watching. Sometimes I pinch myself to remind myself I'm not dreaming. Clinton was cool, in a friend's cool dad sort of way, with his sax and black shades. But Barack, he just oozes self confidence and cool in a way we've never had before in the White House. JFK was similar, but he was limited by his ailing body. Obama love for sport and culture allow him a rare opportunity to put forth a new image of America. No wonder he was such a hit with the young Hollywood types.
