A thoughtful rumination

Larry Lessig takes some time to lay out his reasoning for choosing Obama over Hillary. He points out that their policy differences are small, but marshalls some persuasive evidence that the other differences between them are not. Yes, there are style differences, but we also have clues about the relative consideration that each gives to principle versus expedience, their moral characters as revealed in their campaign techniques, and what they might do as leaders in office. Worth the 20 minute investment for anybody who appreciates a careful argument, as well as for those still making up their minds (or getting over Edwards, heh).
