Ok. I’m not going to step out and say if I think he’ll be our next president. I’m not even going to say whether or not I think he is ready or experienced enough to run for the presidency. Those questions are better left to be debated on Sunday morning talk shows (at least for now).
I am going to give props to Barack Obama for being on his political hustle the past two years. We never even heard of this guy a few years ago and today we’re talking about his chances of becoming the most powerful man on earth a couple of years from now. Sure Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton ran for president, but we all knew they wouldn’t win. They knew they wouldn’t win. It was just a political statement of sorts (a statement I appreciate). But today… We actually have an African American with REAL potential to run and possible win.
I listen to Obama’s podcast once a week and follow the activities on Capital Hill… And the one thing you can say about him is that he is above the normal rhetoric of modern day politics. There is real substance to what he says. I’ll even go out on a limb to suggest that he’s sincere (of course only time will tell, we’ve been fooled before).
He just may be a perfect example of how truth, sincerity, and honesty are a Hustler’s best friend. As Lewis reminded me of the other day… Sometimes people just want to hear the truth not rhetoric or creative sales pitches.
Nonetheless… pay close attention to this guy over the next few months. He is definitely on his Hustle and one day could affect yours!!!
