I somehow doubt it. Dana Milbank has a piece in today's Washington Post where he outlines the incredible hubris (his word, not mine) of Democractic Presidential Nomineee Barack Obama: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/07/29/AR2008072902068.html?hpid=topnews. One quote in particular struck me as emblematic of this man's obviously colossal ego, an ego which he is obviously finding it more and more difficult to hide:
"The 5:20 TBA turned out to be his adoration session with lawmakers in the Cannon Caucus Room, where even committee chairmen arrived early, as if for the State of the Union. Capitol Police cleared the halls -- just as they do for the actual president. The Secret Service hustled him in through a side door -- just as they do for the actual president.
Inside, according to a witness, he told the House members, "This is the moment . . . that the world is waiting for," adding: "I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.""
Get OVER yourself, Barack. It may be one thing to think that you're God's gift to humanity and the United States, a perception which Dana Milbank would have to admit if he's being honest is fed by MSM outlets such as the very newspaper for which he works. Nonetheless, it's quite another to publicly proclaim how wonderful you are. Americans don't mind a President who has a bit of a swagger. In fact, they generally like it. Arrogance is quite another thing, however.
