It's sad that some Christian groups have turned against Barack Obama. And their attacks on him contradict their own claims of living Christian lives. Then again, they're the ones who see Jesus as a warrior, instead of a peaceful teacher of justice and equality. The history of likely history is lost on these folks.
To me an ideal leader is thoughtful and practices what he preaches. Barack Obama embodies a balanced, spiritually-informed life. He reminds me of a favorite teacher...the one whom you look up to, who never acts inappropriately. And so, you aspire to be like them.
