I like Senator Obama, but...

I've read about Sen. Obama's trip to New Hampshire. It seems like everyone had a great time. And that's nice. However, I think this quote sums up the trip (and my feelings) wonderfully:

Some are: “He still has a lot more to prove to people here,” said New Hampshire Democratic state Rep.-elect Dan McKenna, after hearing Obama address a rapturous crowd of 1,500 party activists in Manchester on Sunday. “The next time he comes here, people will be looking for more substance.”
The excitement over Obama is “great for the party, great for the country,” said State Sen. Lou D’Allesandro.But in almost the next breath he said, “All we’ve gotten from Barack is good looks, good rhetoric, and great publicity.”

For all the hype, what do we know about the man? What do we know about where he wants to lead? Don't misunderstand, I like him as a Senator. I even think he might make an excellent VP candidate in 2008. HOWEVER, top of the ticket? We need more than style... we need substance.

And no, I'm not talking about Hillary.

Are you talking about my honey John Edwards? Obama is the souffle of the day - pretty, but ready to fall.
