As an investor, founder, CEO and business book author, I write about startups, design, how to build a good business, and I like to muse about culture in any form.

The Obama Bargain

The only thing protecting the conservative black writer Shelby Steele from a witch hunt, after today’s excoriating opinion piece about Obama, is its appearance in the Wall Street Journal. Nothing is too far to the right for that publication. Steele did have a brilliant line which summarizes the tough road Hillary Clinton has faced in this race: “So the Clintons have found themselves running more against America’s very highest possibilities than against a man.”

She still gets my vote…I value presidential reality, over presidential possibility, for the current state of the nation. But it’s still really hard to not love the possibility side.
