During a rally for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Friday, former President Barack Obama played all of his fans' favorite hits.

Barnes, a throwback to Georgia’s once mighty but now dismantled Democratic machine, was eager to talk about the South’s contradictions. And, as the governor who oversaw the revamp of Georgia’s state flag back in 2001—which removed the battle emblem and arguably cost him reelection in 2002—few are more uniquely qualified.

Look who’s talking

Talk about getting off to a great start at a new job. John Silvanus Wilson Jr. was three weeks into his gig as Morehouse College president when he got a call from the White House: President Obama was interested in delivering the 2013 commencement address.
