Obama "Not Not" Running in 2008

There is a reason to buy the September/October edition of Men's Vogue: a fantastic profile piece on Barack Obama.

In it we learn from writer Jacob Weisberg that Obama is not, not running for the presidency in 2008.

The Illinoisan will be keynoting U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin's steak fry this weekend.

A great line from the Weisberg piece in Men's Vogue: "Obama, of course, would never be so immodest as to compare himself to those two men (Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln). But being clear-eyed he must see what others do: that among American politicians, he alone has the potential to one day be mentioned in the same breath."
