Even a few months ago I would say "Average"...A likeable mediocrity, like Gerald Ford.
I mean, I have seriously considered voting for the guy, as a lesser evil - or, just maybe, something really different.... Some people who I really respect (Bill Weld, Colin Powell, Boris Johnson, Chris Buckley, to name a few) had been swayed by the same sentiment.

Barack Obama belongs right there in the dumpster of history, along with Tricky Dick, Jimmy Carter, Slick Willy and Bush Jr. (except that Dubya actually appears to be a decent human being, just totally inadequate in the role of President).
