"When other front-runners do God-talk their remarks typically parrot the sentiments of their pastors, handlers or focus groups. The junior senator from Illinois, by contrast, has thought originally about the role of belief in his life and that of the nation. His willingness to tackle theological questions in a reasoned and even detached manner is rivaled among politicians only by Al Gore. The difference is that Obama is edgy. Al Gore is not."
– p. 103, Thumpin’ It, Jacques Berlinerblau
I just wanted to agree that no, Al Gore is not edgy.
