Seriously. I’ve been crazy about him for two years, more, but man… lately I just get choked up with emotion at the very sight of him. He kills me. I’m googly over him like I was googly over David Cassidy when I was a child, but with way more depth.
And not because he’s good-lookin’ and smooth, though that certainly makes a nice icing for his tasty and nutritious cake. It’s because of who he is. He slays me.
the thing that motivated the share was video of him on ABC this morning talking about visiting his grandmother, wanting to give her a kiss and a hug, and then planning to see what chores haven’t been done that he can do for her. Out of any other politician’s mouth it would sound like bullshit. But I believe him and I love him for it.
I’m thrilled to note that I am only one single degree of separation from him, too. Very good friends of mine went to Occidental College and smoked pot with Barry Obama.
Sigh… how amazing to have a crush on the (almost) president.
