    Hubris is setting in, can't say I'm surprised. He couches it by way of expanding the analogy, but it's clear what he means:

    Nah, I think it's his own personality, there is something there... At the same time, the DNC sees him as the 'Great Black Hope', who is one of their few bright lights.

    He's quite young, very educated and very bright. Very photogenic and has a great voice. Yet, something strikes me when I see/listen to him. I will try to catch him live, perhaps it's just weird to me that considering he was just entering the Senate, from a state that is overwhelming blue, running against a carpetbagger Republican, and was being brought up as a possible Presidential candidate for 2008...

    That's the overall impression I was left with. Very charismatic and charming - which doesn't hurt of course. Since that's about all I know, I'll step out of this discussion. :cool:
