Barack Obama's notable thumping of Clinton and Edwards last night in Iowa brought to mind any number of people in Oak Park who are certainly going to take this opportunity to drop his name regularly and with as much zest as their modesty might allow.

And why not? This is a moment. If, through your good work or good fortune, you have actually known Obama before his ascendancy, who wouldn't crow some? Senator Obama has led and been attached to any number of issues and causes that would put him on the same trajectory as activist Oak Parkers.

I know several of those people and I'll bet you do too.

Doesn't hurt that David Axelrod, Obama's top strategist, is a now former but long-time Oak Parker.
