Obama's Poetry Evaluated in UK

It's sometimes interesting to check out the coverage abroad of our political campaign, and I came across this piece on Obama's poetry, calling it "actually surprisingly good."
OK, it is not exactly Walt Whitman, but it reveals a lyrical sensibility and a refreshing awareness of the power of words.
Yeah. And he's used that power in the service of politics, making politics and governing cool.
