More on religious language.

Barack ObamaAmy Sullivan — congrats on the new position as editor at the Washington Monthly! — decodes Clinton's speech and follows up with a gloss on Barack Obama's "evango-speak." (Wow, was that a great speech! My question: Can he slow his rapid ascent just long enough for my state senator, Jarrett Barrios, to get into Congress? Obama-Barrios in 2012!)

P.S. Chutney was paying attention to the Rev. James Allston's speech on Monday when I wasn't, and noticed another homiletical touch: "hutting."

I'm not sure how tongue in cheek you're being. I like Barrios a lot... as a state senator. He's even come into his own voice more during the gay marriage debate. But there's really no comparison to someone like Obama.

True! Barrios is a great local politician, and I think he'll eventually have a good shot at Congress. He was my wife and my favorite up-and-comer — until we saw Obama. You're right: That guy is something else.
