Notice How I Am Not Blogging About The Campaign

Must...not...get...political! Must...resist...even though ... so much ... is ... at stake.

Can't help it!

If you saw Obama's half-hour TV special last night (I can't, just can't refer to it as an 'infomercial') then you saw the stories: the profiles of people woven together with some more specific political talking points.

Stories are how we connect, and how we relate with people not like us. Narrative has that power, beyond any list of ideas or bulleted press release topics. I know I keep saying this ... but stories work. They matter. And in the end the sheer fact of their resonance and ability to move us at our core is what keeps me doing this.
