change

Jim Wallis: "... political leaders in Washington have changed America less often than social movements have. America is signaling it is hungry for change again, and we will need to build the kind of spiritual and social movement that can deliver on that hope. Last night, Barack Obama said, "it's also about what you, the people who love this country, can do to change it." And he's right; it is really all about us."

thoughts on the iowa caucus

The Two Earthquakes (NYT)
Jim Wallis
Diana Butler Bass
My friend Rudy's take on it (love the Happy Joe's reference!)

I find myself a little doubtful about some of the hyperbole surrounding the caucus, suggesting that it could set the stage for a "referendum on the Protestant political soul" seems a little much for me. But I am glad Obama did well in my home state and take some comfort in David Brook's thoughts re: Huckabee.
