I am usually the very antithesis of a skinny black guy from Illinois. I'm a 6'1", 220 pound white truck driver from Tennessee, would rather be in the woods or a swamp than in the swankiest restaurant in New York City, and have been, as some may have noticed, somewhat skeptical of Senator Obama.
I have listened, by radio, to Senator Clinton come fully in support of Obama, and President Clinton do likewise. I've heard the man I respect most in American politics, Al Gore, voice full-throated support for him. And I've listed to Obama himself.
I'm convinced. Tonight I'm a skinny black guy from Illinois.
