because you can't stop looking

The debates unnerved both candidates. When he was preparing for the Democratic primary debates, 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'."


From the huffington post reporting on a newsweek "behind the scenes".

I twittered the line about solving global warming earlier this evening. The actual first part of the in-depth Newsweek behind-the-scenes piece that comes out later this month is already online here. It's really very good--I'm looking forward to the other six parts!!

I'm thinking I might actually get a copy if I'm out and about and see one.

I was thinking that too--it's excellent.
