That may be True

Obama has been known throughout his political career for his ability to see and plan for the future.

whether this action might be seen as a sign of overconfidence or, possibly, arrogance. Ms. Halliday

that the major starpower of Senator Obama and the magnitude of the receptions at his appearances
made election virtually certain.
