I must confess to my with my fellow I.U.er's: There is a a part of me that likes Barack Obama, a lot. Then, there is another part of me that is scared-witless, eyes wide-open, but then that's me; the story of my life.....
My dualism-based toxic mind has, probably, not a damn thing to do with Barack Obama. It has to do with me and me alone. Barack, it seems is, other than a presidential candidate, a kind of bell weather for me.
Even though I plan to vote for him in November, how fast do my eyes pop open in great concern when I hear someone say he has heard that Barack is a Marxist. Yep, eyes pop open and then narrow. "Are you kidding, I ask, only because the guy saying this is not just anyone, but my much beloved older cousin? "No," says he, "heard it on the radio." (We both live in the Southland now, as we did as middle schoolers but now, a state apart. We are still, nonetheless, world travelers....that whole side of our family is like that. While 3% of Americans owned a valid passport in mid-2003, my cousins and I have a 100% rating and did so long before the latest financial burden on the middle class; now, one must have a passport to go to Canada or Mexico, the islands, central and South America.
Is Obama a Marxist? I don't think so, but as always, when I hear anything like that, I'm gonna check it out.

It's been less than two days since he crossed the delegate threshold to become the Democratic presidential nominee and Sen. Barack Obama's mark on the party is already being felt.
On Good Morning America Thursday, ABC News' Chief Washington Correspondent George Stephanopoulos reported "the Democratic National Committee will no longer accept contributions from federal lobbyists, will no longer take contributions from PACs" in keeping with Obama's well-publicized policy.
