Being Green in Iowa: Obama's Conversation at Coe
Excerpted from this post at Being Green in Iowa
Well, I watched Senator Obama's appearance at Coe College last night,
long after the event happened. I was impressed with some of it, and
terribly disappointed at other parts of it. Overall, he did well, but
I wish he had done better. First, the good. Regarding the issue of
faith, I liked his answer concerning how his faith informs his values.
It is good to hear candidates speak of their faith, whether that faith
be in a god or in humankind. Such statements add depth and help us
towards a better understanding of the candidate's rationale behind
his/her programs. Towards that end, Obama did well. Likewise I
welcomed his comments about LGBT civil unions.
