Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

An excellent clip of Denzel Washington as Malcolm X (wait for the end):

And then there's this (at about 3:05):

Before you get all bent out of shape, oh me little droogies, I've always rather admired Malcolm X. And, truth be told, I increasingly wonder if the best pure politicians of my generation, Billy & Hilly, have met their match in Obama, who may be the best pure politician of his. At least in the short run. And what's more important than that?
