For the past day or two, I’ve been looking at the archives of some websites to hear what people were saying about Obama four years ago.
This one, from Salon.com’s War Room is my favorite.
In his recent profile of Obama in the New Yorker, William Finnegan describes a story about Rep. Jan Schakowsky’s visit to the White House with a congressional delegation. “On her way out, she said, President Bush noticed her ‘OBAMA’ button. ‘He jumped back, almost literally,’ she said. ‘And I knew what he was thinking. So I reassured him it was Obama, with a ‘b.’ And I explained who he was. The President said, ‘Well, I don’t know him.’ So I just said, ‘You will.'”
