“Let’s reach for hope” is Obama’s campaign slogan of the week. But he doesn’t say how reaching for hope will accomplish anything.

He doesn’t say what to do with hope when you grasp it. If you have a handful of hope, can you take it to the bank? Or the grocery store?

What are we supposed to be hoping for? Rain? Socialism? A chicken with 4 wings and 4 legs?

It sounds to me like a handful of hope doesn’t really count for much.
