There were so many reasons to vote for Barack Obama on this last Nov. 6.
But for me, one, if not THE MOST PERSUASIVE reason, was that if you put a truly smart man up against it, you're likely to see him get smarter. Because the real definition of intelligence is somewhere between IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence). A truly sage human being has a good mix of both. And that's something I've always felt in Barack Obama's vibe.
I think the same was true of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, and well, all our really great presidents who consistently win the test of time.
