The hero worship continues. On the Durham Freeway this morning, I came upon a car with baseball caps lining the inside of the rear window. No, they weren’t declaring their support for State, Carolina, or Duke. The caps were embroidered with “Obama” across the stop. If one supports the president, fine by me. And in the Democratic Party stronghold of Durham County, it’s not a surprise. It is the hero status that gives me pause.  Our system of government is designed around debate among branches of government over policies and actions, which are endorsed or rejected at the ballot box — not on assigning “rock star” status to a politician.
