He has a blog and he has a Flickr page. That alone makes him cool, right? Well... no, kinda hip, maybe. Anyway, all the buzz these days goes to Presidential Candidate Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL). It would have been Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), but lately, she's reminding us more of the evil Vice President character in Prison Break (it's the way they both talk).

Obama is magnetic. So magnetic that "I have never seen that large of a political gathering in South Carolina in my 40 years of covering politicians," political columnist Lee Bandy told NPR's All Things Considered on Saturday. Bandy writes for The State newspaper in Columbia, S.C.

If you are curious to check out this magnetism, we recommend a little research and Obama's Issues page is a good start. You'll find out about cleaning up Washington, getting out of Iraq and other important thoughts. But for the moment, meet him tomorrow at a rally!
