What makes a man (or a woman, for that matter) Great?
It is not in the deeds and the doings.
It is in the invisible realm, where speculation rises --
where we see the conflict of the soul,
the struggle for righteous justice,
and the courage yet to make a choice between conflicting ends,
each improbably equally good, or bad.
That's what made Lincoln great and Bush a bummer,
and still leaves me feeling that Obama is just a technocrat.
