Quote of the Day: Obama on taking risks

Back in 1990, Tammerlin Drummond interviewed Barack Obama after he'd been elected the first African American President of the Harvard Law Review. Here's what he said about the value of a Harvard education:
"One of the luxuries of going to Harvard Law School is it means you can take risks in your life," Obama said recently. "You can try to do things to improve society and still land on your feet. That's what a Harvard education should buy - enough confidence and security to pursue your dreams and give something back."

  1. Breaking the bondage of the past, ending the Cold War dicta that every sneeze in another nation requires our armed intervention and control, working for the poor and genuinely devoted to the stability of the middle class? Yup. Taking risks even when polls are down, people are deceived, life is hard, and threats are your constant companion. I'd say he lived what he said.
