Though the words were written about Gen. W.T. Sherman, they are still apropos for this election.


“Among men who rise to fame and leadership two types are recognizable—those who are born with a belief in themselves and those in whom it is a slow growth dependent on actual achievement. To the men of the last type their own success is a constant surprise, and its fruits the more delicious, yet to be tested cautiously with a haunting sense of doubt whether it is not all a dream. In that doubt, lies true modesty….”----BH Liddell-Hart

Come on. You know which one.

It seems to me that Romney fits the archetype of the "born to the manor" type, while Obama is the guy who learned humility by trial and error.

Pretty sure Paul has been humiliated by millions over the years, what has changed, besides he is getting the last laugh this time.

I'm sorry, I just can't see "humility" and "Obama" in the same sentence without laughing. There is nothing humble about him.
