Here’s a very interesting 2004 CNN interview with Barack Obama. Obama was very open and candid about what he feels a political candidate should know and do before considering running for office on a national ticket.
I’m guessing that the Obama Campaign is not going to be happy that this video is now getting digital air time via YouTube. When your opposition – both John McCain and Hillary Clinton – have been repeating the accusation that Obama is “Not Ready To Lead,” it’s got to be painful for his campaign staff that Obama himself said he couldn’t be ready in 2008 and wouldn’t be comfortable trying to become ready.
One Word: Ouch!
