Christopher Buckley: Slowly Growing Up...But Probably Not

Christopher Buckley recaps for us: "I voted for Barack Obama largely on the basis of his temperament, which I thought superior. He is only 47 years old, but to me seemed older than that: a man of precocious aspect and judgment. In the French wording, un homme sérieux."

Which is funny.

Because Obama seemed to me to be a socialist. In the French wording, socialiste.

Mr Buckley, on the other hand, seemed to me naive. In the French wording...naive.
