Shining point

“I come here not to dispute the suggestion that I haven’t yet achieved enough in my life,” Obama said in a commencement speech Wednesday. With a smile he added: “First of all, Michelle (Obama) concurs with that assessment. She has a long list of things that I have not yet done waiting for me when I get home.”

“But more than that I come to embrace the notion that I haven’t done enough in my life. I heartily concur. I come to affirm that one’s title, even a title like ‘president of the United States,’ says very little about how well one’s life has been led.”

Sounds like he has a good personal perspective… now if only he’d carry it over to his Presidency…
