Thinking about Obama

/ 14 November 2007

You will note that in previous posts I’ve linked to some good things that both Barack Obama and John Edwards have had to say, and I’ve been critical of Hillary Clinton. I will certainly and clearly support whomever is ultimately nominated by the Dems, but I haven’t really been able to make up my mind whom to push for (the way I did last time, when I was a rabid Dean supporter). But today Lawrence Lessig, a scholar and activist on Net issues whose work I really like, officially endorses Barack Obama, offering some compelling reasons why. I have to admit: it makes me lean more towards Obama. I’m still trying to make up my mind, but Lessig’s reasons are a powerful push. He points, in particular, to Obama’s position on technology.
