How to talk to people about Obama
Great post over at TPMCafe about how to talk to people about Obama. Basically, be polite, listen, don't be aggressive. Basic common decency, but it's always nice to be reminded of this. I think it's particularly important in the age of blogs to keep this stuff in mind, because blogs provide a certain freedom to rant, and that can be problematic in the real world. I always try to keep in mind how Obama himself treats people who disagree with him when I engage in political discussions. I have to admit that I wasn't at my best during primary season, when I was mad at Hillary. But I like to think that I always tried to at least be fair.
