    Obama in Colorado:compassion, dignity, leadership; political differences aside, he personifies the best about America - unity, courage and the determination of local communities in the face of adversity. Agreed?

    He (or his reelection team) is politically brilliant, too. What better way to contrast himself with Romney than to highlight his support for firefighters?

    Anyway, yes, I think the move was a good demonstration of leadership and empathy.

    Mmmm. Doesn't seem to have had much of a political-differences-aside unifying influence on you, though.

    It would have, had the exchange(s) between him and Romney not been so recent.

    His visit to Joplin, MO, for example, was one of many such unifying displays of leadership, though.

    We are lucky to have Barak Obama as President. A man who has won a Nobel Peace Prize and a transparency award from the media and someone who has brought the nation together is a rare find indeed.

    I think any President would have been there. In fact, I think it's obligatory.
