Click here for a 10-minute audio from Sen. Barack Obama’s visit to the Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver. It includes an inspired intro by Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper. Great fun, wish we’d been there.
A couple of Obama treats from Slate: John Dickerson’s writerly account of the senator’s visit to New Hampshire last weekend (with audio version here), and a sendup of Obama’s teasing NFL promo on Monday Night Football.
And here is Dickerson’s balanced take on what Slate impishly calls “Barackwater,” a questionable home-purchase deal, with Obama himself leading the questions and saying he regrets his misjudgement. For Obama believers, it’s a good story to understand, because I’m sure we will hear lots about it in the coming months.
