The Egocentricity of Hope

Jonah Goldberg takes on a big topic, Barack Obama’s ego:

[T]here’s little evidence that he’s interested in dispelling or rebutting the cult of personality he’s developed. Obama himself talks of reversing the ocean’s tides.
The overarching theme to his entire campaign . . . is that voting for Obama is proof of the cosmic superiority of … Obama voters.
In a speech in Madison, Wis., Obama told his supporters that rallying to his cause was today’s equivalent of the “greatest generation” rallying to defeat Hitler and Tojo. Oprah merely calls him, “The One,” saying he will help us “evolve to a higher plane.” . . .
Take his decision to deliver his acceptance speech at Invesco Field at Mile High in Denver. It seems that the venue for the rest of the Democratic convention – the Pepsi Center (occupancy 21,000) – is just too small. . . .
A demigod, it seems, is never so tall as when he stoops to bask in the adoration of the little people.

If somehow Obama should manage to fumble away this election, his own hubris will be to blame.
