Obama takes Wisconsin, with Hawaii results to come.

In late 2006 a New Yorker podcast of David Remnick interviewing Barack Obama did a fair amount to convince me that Obama was my kind of candidate. There’s nothing like 45 minutes of sustained discourse (at that time, hard to come by) to clarify one’s impression of a person. I’ve supported Obama ever since.

Today, it’s a curio, but perhaps all the more interesting for being more than a year old. Here’s the file itself; here’s a transcript. Terms from the headline are derived from the interview (natch). Enjoy.
