Never has a first-term senator been so heavily promoted to be president despite the utter lack of real evidence on what makes him the obvious choice to be the Democratic Pary's presidential candidate. His record is liberal but no one knows much about the man's character, his leadership abilities nor his ideas on where the country should go. The Washington Post doesn't seem to have a clue.

Flash over substance: Liberal, inexperienced first-term senator anointed rock star and Democratic party savior by the Washington Post

It is a homily that has left some fellow politicians swooning. "I haven't seen a phenomenon like this, where someone comes in so new and is so dazzling," said Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), a 25-year veteran of Congress. Schumer, who heads the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said Obama "is more requested than anybody else" in the party's hierarchy for fundraising and campaign appearances on behalf of congressional candidates. "Everyone wants him. He's lightning."

From obscurity in the Illinois legislature to national prominence, is Obama the next Lincoln?? Inquiring minds want to know, the Washington Post wishes it were so.
