Milking It

Was it my imagination or did Obama take an inordinately long time to vote this morning?
I watched him on TV and kept thinking: "What's taking him so long?"
Let's face it: There really isn't any choice in Chicago. It's a one-party town. And we all know that. Obama was voting for the party that has ruled the windy city forever.
He could have cast his vote in a few seconds.
For him (and for nearly all of Chicago) it was a no brainer. There is no choice in Chicago.
So, why the long, drawn out show?
Because it was just that -- a show.
And Obama was milking it for all it's worth.
Say what you will - he loves the spotlight and he's quite a performer.
