Steven Levitt on Barack Obama

"If he has the same effect on others as he does on me, you are looking at a future president."

Wow. That’s a strong endorsement from a seemingly apolitical economist.

I’m certainly on the Barack bandwagon, although I was struck by Maureen Dowd’s comment a few weeks back that, "He’s intriguingly imperfect: His ears stick out, he smokes, and he’s
written about wrestling with pot, booze and ”maybe a little blow” as
a young man."
