Condolences to the Obama family

I'm sorry Barack Obama's grandmother didn't get to see him actually win, and renew my condolences.

Setting aside politics altogether for a moment: I extend my condolences to Sen. Obama and his family on the loss of his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Madelyn "Toot" Dunham, who passed away today after a long fight with cancer. As I wrote here on October 21st, I thought that Mrs. Dunham was the most appealing person portrayed in Sen. Obama's first book, "Dreams from My Father." I have no doubt that she was a positive influence and example for Sen. Obama throughout his own life, and I'm certain her entire family will miss her a great deal.
