I'm intrigued by Mr. Obama and his charisma & charm. I'm also confused as to why so many Democrats seem to think he needs time to age for a White House bid. He's 43; he'll be around 47 in 2008, older than Jack Kennedy when he was killed. Others have been dismissing him for a lack of national political experience, but the past two Presidents have had zero national political experience. The guy's clearly a shooting star, why not let him shoot as high as he can? Why not Obama in 2008?
