In the video above Mary Katharine Ham humorously elaborates on the hectoring and devotional elements of the Obama campaign. Ms. Ham omits any reference to the warning Mrs. Obama provided in her admoniton to the Los Angeles disciples of Barack:
Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your division. That you come out of your isolation. That you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual; uninvolved, uninformed.
I have felt that as long as Senator Obama won’t require us to listen to the missus, I might be willing to settle for the compulsory mental readjustments. On that score, Ms. Ham’s video has inspired sober second thoughts on my part.
