A New Hope
The latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine will give readers an amazing look at "the machinery of Hope," otherwise known as the "grass-roots field operation of Barack Obama, who is transforming the way political campaigns are run." In my opinion, Rolling Stone offers the best political articles and commentary, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this! This also marks the first time the magazine has endorsed a candidate for the presidency during the primary. The reason, the editors say, is because "Undoing the damage of the disastrous Bush years will take a leader who can unite a deeply divided nation, and politicians with gifts like Obama's are so rare that it's imperative for each of us to do our part. Obama has emerged by displaying precisely the kind of character and judgment we need in a president: renouncing the politics of fear, speaking frankly on the most pressing issues facing the country and sticking to his principles."
