I'm still withholding comment on Senator Barack Obama as a presidential candidate, a position which our current media and political climate seems to consider a true one rather than a neutral one. Regardless of whether you believe Senator Obama is the great_______(supply your own adjective) hope, the man possess a facility with words worthy of admiration.
He may not have said it first, but he says it so that 21st century Americans get it:
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential. Barack Obama
