Yes, I did. He's currently in the process of quitting. I don't know how successful he's been, though.

Who is he? - I hate all smokers!

Andrea - this is kind of crushing. I huffed this like 3 weeks ago. Have you not been reading my huffs?

Yeah, I recently read an article on BBC about him, and it mentions that he smokes tobacco. He admitted to smoking weed and is quoted with, "I inhaled - That was the point." He also used cocaine to "ease the pain of his ongoing struggle to define his racial identity," as a youth, but he sure as hell isn't doing anything like that now.

For people who don't smoke anything (like myself), it's a bit of a turn-off, but at the same time you get the feeling that the guy's not as much of a fake as the average politician.

Whether the president is Obama or Clinton in 2007, either way, we've reached a major milestone.

I realized in "Dreams from my Father" that smoking was a constant in Obama's life--I find it kind of interesting that he deliberately weaves the smoking habit into his memoir. It is a bummer, though.

I think there's a lot to be gained from paying attention to this guy (and to reading his memoir if you haven't) despite his vice. He's refreshingly smart, appropriately self-reflective and all around bad-ass. Obama 2008!
