Barack Obama: "Sail on, O Ship of State!"

Is that David Axelrod with his hat on in the stern of the boat? I don't know where Barack Obama is, but I am pretty sure that's his grandma and Rev. Wright in the water with their hands up.

Great image. The ship of state, in reference to Plato's parable, is quite appropriate today. The correct imagery might be the Titanic, flying under the flag of the United States federal government. Who will step forward with knowledge enough to steer us clear of the iceberg? Could it perhaps be Barrack Obama?

I loved the picture, too, but it seems to me that very few people with a great deal of knowledge are attracted to government careers, even as elected officials.

I think we have already hit the iceberg.
