These 10 reasons to support Barack Obama come from the web site for New Yorkers for Obama. If you're looking for more New York State Obama for President resources, here you go, but the field is a bit impoverished at this early stage. Personally, I find this top 10 list a bit on the crass side, but I'd like to see a lot more people expressing themselves frankly about the political candidates they support.
1. He is actually interesting to listen to.
2. Unlike many politicians, Obama has done stuff that's truly hard -- like trying to organize in South side Chicago.
3. Obama is half-black, and half-white, and from everywhere. He may be the only politician who gets all sides of race in America.
4. He connects with people like Bill Clinton did. People who disagree with him support him.
5. He is honest. If he disagrees with you, he says so.
6. He is decent.
7. He writes well.
8. He's a pragmatist, who pursues what works.
9. He makes you believe in a better future.
10. He makes you want to set up stupid web sites like this one.
