It’s been a while since I last posted (sorry! ::braces for whipping::), and it appears my good professor has since added a new category to her blog: “shameless plug.” Here comes one of mine: A week and a half ago I wrote this column in The Daily Northwestern and said, among other things, that Barack Obama just isn’t liberal enough for me. Predictably, most of the comments I received were negative. This is a college campus in Illinois, after all. (Oh, and please don’t mind the video. My first foray into multimedia journalism was quite embarrassing.)
You’ll notice that I offhandedly diss Hillary, too. Brownie points for any commenter who can guess which candidate(s) I supported back when there were 8 guys and gals in the Democratic race… and for anyone who can explain why on earth someone who says Barack Obama isn’t liberal enough is seriously considering voting for Mitt Romney in the Feb. 5 Illinois primary.
