Obama had dinner with a group of conservative writers last night. Made me smile for a variety of reasons:
1. As Chris Matthews pointed out, it says "you're my critics, not my enemies;"
2. It is so utterly different from something W or Cheney would have done;
3. It marginalizes the likes of Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh et al.;
4. He's smart enough to hold his own with thinking opponents.
Add to that - Obama is hosting a dinner in honor of McCain on Monday. Quite encouraging that we're in a new era. Class act. I don't expect to agree with all of his decisions (already don't), but I DO like his style.
