Obama gets that dirt of his shoulder

Posted by Bushel Basket in , , ,


Obama's ability to tap into popular culture to make a political statement is astounding. Yet, to take it one step further, I find myself wondering if "brushing the dirt off your shoulder," in this context isn't also tapping into a spiritual truth? Isn't it Buddhist non-attachment? Isn't it turning the other cheek? And, to take it one step further, isn't this the type of political leadership we need? The ability to let bygones be bygones? There are very few countries in the world that we have not offended by our policies, or that have offended our current political leadership for not following our policies?

January 20, 2009, we can all brush our shoulders off, and move towards a better future.
