During his first time as Washington DC Mayor, Marion Berry was asked if he was afraid that Jesse Jackson would run for his job. Berry's reply was "Jesse don't want to run nothing but his mouth."
That pithy comment summed up Jesse Jackson perfectly. Jesse Jackson wanted camera time, not to be held responsible for picking up the trash, and fixing pot holes. In what may be the first kind thing I have ever said about the man, Jesse Jackson was shrewd enough to know his limitations, and made darn sure that he didn't get elected to a job he would be terrible at.
BO, on the other hand, didn't believe that he had any limitations. Although he may be beginning to suspect.
When all is said and done, the only limitations that The One will recognize will be ours.
We simply didn't appreciate his greatness...
