Barack Obama

Coming from my own perspective, I should note that I disagree with many of Obama’s notions and could well end up agreeing more with one of his opponents. But anyone who’s observed him closely can see that Obama is a new kind of politician. As Klein once observed, he’s that rarest of creatures: a megahyped phenomenon that lives up to the hype.

It may not be personally convenient for him, but the times will never again so completely require the gifts that he possesses. Whether you’re liberal or conservative, you should hope Barack Obama runs for president.

Need money? Need contacts?

For information about the Rockies Venture Club's
Fall Finance Forum, see
It is being held 1 p.m. Tuesday, November 14 here in Denver.

Four entrepreneurs will have their business plans critiqued
by venture capitalists; learn how to get money to take your
business to the next level.

I'll have a booth, looking for people who would like to be in our
next Franklin Circle. RVC's Forums are the best networking events
in Denver, in my opinion. Stop by and say hi.

Also, we still have a couple of seats open for the next Denver
IDEA Cafe Meetup. Please come if you want to learn more about
the startup process as you start a new project, a new business,
or a new career. Please don't come just to network.

Please let me know if you'd be interested in being part of the
new Franklin Circles that are now forming for entrepreneurs,
small business owners, and managers.

Please forward this page along to your friends or associates
who are starting a project, a new career, or a new business. They will
thank you, and so will I if you copy me when you forward to them.
