"How He Did It"

I've finally gotten the time to read (and watch and listen to the associated videos of) the Newsweek site's "Secrets of the 2008 Campaign: How He Did It." This is a quote from Obama in mid-2007:

"So when Brian Williams is asking me about what's a personal thing that you've done [that's green], and I say, you know, 'Well, I planted a bunch of trees.' And he says, 'I'm talking about personal.' What I'm thinking in my head is, 'Well, the truth is, Brian, we can't solve global warming because I f–––ing changed light bulbs in my house. It's because of something collective'."

I'm a cynical person and I don't say these were the only thoughts in his head or that he couldn't have been compromised after, but I really, really think we did the right thing.
