Barack Obama's facebook page lists Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon, Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, The Bible, Lincolin's writings, and Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Self-Reliance" as our next president's favorite books. A near perfect list, in my humble opinion. I might suggest he add this one:
No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger, by Mark Twain. (For obvious reasons)
For his favorite music, Obama lists Bach (and specifies, "cello suites!"--yes!), Stevie Wonder (from my hometown, Saginaw, MI), and Miles, Coltrane, and Dylan.
His favorite TV: Sportscenter.
One of his interests: "loafing w/ kids."
In other words, what I assume, Obama assumes, and what Obama assumes, I shall assume.
Let's all go vote for this guy, and look for each other in line.
