I was watch the news yesterday morning. I was sitting at my desk writing with the news on, as is my routine.
A segment came on the TV featuring President Obama.
He made an appearance at a school, it looked like he was talking with older elementary school and middle school boys and girls. They were out on the field together playing baseball, throwing the football, having fun.
President Obama can do it all. He threw a long spiral pass, he knocked a softly thrown baseball over the fence.
They kids adored him.
I miss having a person like him in the Oval Office.
The way he spoke to the children was uplifting. It wasn’t just that he was inspiring, a rhetorical skill which he can turn on and off at will. It was the genuine caring in his voice and manner, his humility, his respect for them.
I miss that in our president.
