1. Will probably never cheat on his wife.
2. Black man with potential to be elected to the office of POTUS / White man elected Mayor of modern day Baltimore.
3. Both, though, may inherit a shit economy.
4. Carcetti had a black chief of staff, Norman Wilson, while Obama has a white chief of staff, Plouffe, it seems and I can’t remember the last non-family member black person I’ve seen the man with.
5. Obama aspires to Bartlett level politics; Carcetti was grounded in a much more realistic desperateness.
