Even before he entered public life, he began honing not only his political skills, but also his mental and emotional ones He does not easily exult, despair or anger: to do so would be an indulgence, a distraction from his goals. Even an extreme conservative like Pat Buchanan--who started out writing speeches for Richard Nixon and helped devise the Republican's "southern strategy" to use racial fear to transform working class whites from Democrats to Republicans--could express nothing but professional admiration for Obama's talent.

Obama proved that he can "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee," It doesn't mean this will be an easy election campaign although McCain's Veep pick of Sarah Palin--runner up for Miss Alaska and recent Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, Pop.
