The Young Obama

From an essay by a fellow who met Obama back in the Oxy College days:

Whatever impact our encounter might have had on him, I know something about what Barack Obama believed in 1980. At that time, the future president was a doctrinaire Marxist revolutionary, although perhaps -- for the first time -- considering conventional politics as a more practical road to socialism.

Evidently Obama took the 'conventional politics' road toward the Revolution.

My "philosophy" at the age of 19 was quite different from my philosophy at age 40.
