I officially heart our new President

I've always said that I'd really like it if our politicians dropped the bull and spoke out honestly (the way they must talk among their buddies). Regardless of whether I agree with them, I'd at least feel like a got a better understanding of who they are and where they come from. Case in point, President-elect Barack Obama from Newsweek via red green and blue
The debates unnerved both candidates. When he was preparing for them during the Democratic primaries, Obama was recorded saying, “I don’t consider this to be a good format for me, which makes me more cautious. I often find myself trapped by the questions and thinking to myself, ‘You know, this is a stupid question, but let me … answer it.’ So when Brian Williams is asking me about what’s a personal thing that you’ve done [that's green], and I say, you know, ‘Well, I planted a bunch of trees.’ And he says, ‘I’m talking about personal.’ What I’m thinking in my head is, ‘Well, the truth is, Brian, we can’t solve global warming because I f—ing changed light bulbs in my house. It’s because of something collective’.” Newsweek
Now if only we could hear the real uncensored thoughts of politicians about DOMA. . .
