Finally! A national topic to sink my teeth into. I definitely am not prepared to just give Barack Obama a pass on this one. Lately his rhetoric has been so measured that it borders on robotic. Even though, as one journalist noted, we can be be sure which side he's on in the Iranian protests, I would have liked to have seen him shoot a bit more from the hip in his responses - a little less telegraphed, a little more emotive. He made a quick reference to MLK and the freedom marchers, and that was on the right track, but he didn't really follow up on his thoughts like he usually does. Very measured.
