Politician vs. Statesman

I read something this evening that I had not heard about anywhere else expect over at Blackfive's. He led me over to Mrs. Greyhawk's wonderful article at the Mudville Gazette that distinguishes the true difference between Sen. Obama - a politician - and Iraq's Minister of the Interior Jawad Karim al-Bolani - a true Statesman.

Why do I declare one this way and the other one in a better light? Read this article. Someone made time for our wounded troops. There was no entourage. A few reporters, but no front-page headlines. No. This MOI al-Bolani came to America to see our wounded and to thank them for freeing his country from that tyrant, Saddam Hussein. Can you imagine that?! HEY! NY TIMES! THEY'RE THANKING THE SOLDIERS! Not you, though, huh? I wonder why...

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
