Gwen Ifill, who is moderating the Vice Presidential Debate, is the author of a pro-Obama book that she plans to release around the time of his inauguration. She is that confident. And the sponsors of the debate are that brazen in abandoning the very appearance of objectivity and neutrality in tapping a journalist to do the questioning who is openly biased towards one ticket. See here for details.
But what intrigues me is the title of her book: “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.” Obama has an “Age”! The most Ronald Reagan ever had ascribed to him was an “era”! We have had the Age of the Greeks, the Age of the Romans, the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages. We have gone through the Age of Discovery and the Industrial Age. Modernism and Postmodernism were mere eras. But now we are entering the Age of Obama. It will be a reign that will last a thousand years.
