“Respect. To get it, you must give it.”

Senator Barack Obama’s campaign has raised the interest in the presidential election this year. Too bad he has not openly and repeatedly condemned the rogue acts of some of his supporters, in the hopes of establishing a respectful and peaceful campaign. Openly and repeatedly should be emphasized, because Obama has a tendency to express gentle admonishments that soon vaporize as soon as they are uttered. Then again, perhaps Obama deserves some credit for the acts of his supporters since he himself was the one who proclaimed, “I want you to argue with them, get in their face.”
