Getting It Out There Early

Maybe it's being in a different generation so it's easier.  But it's refreshing to hear Barack Obama get this out there so it doesn't come out later.  From an article in the NYT:

“When I was a kid, I inhaled,” Mr. Obama said here to an audience of magazine editors. “That was the point.”

He followed it up afterwards about being a mixed-up teenager at the time, learning from it, etc.  Like the youngest kid in the family gets to watch and see how the strategies of the older kids don't work and come up with a much smoother strategy, so too did Obama get to see how Clinton and others handled that inevitable question.  I'm guessing this is the winning strategy.  It's a good omen for his future.

Hat tip to Howie.
