55. Exactly. Obama is running the most DLC type campaign of any Democrat in history
so it's no small wonder how enthralled the DLC is with him. Just look at the articles I linked to down-thread, which point this out.

His "Reaching out to Republicans" theme is right out of the mouths of DLC babes, yet all the faux hard-lefties on DU seem to be unaware of that, while all the hard lefties in the real world know that OBama and the DLC go hand in hand.

Obama has the best of both worlds. He's DLC without actually being a card-carrying member. It's the same with his no-votes, like when he forgot to show up for the Kyle-Lieberman bill. That way he can claim whichever side he wants in the General Election. If the prevailing mood is a warmongering one, he'll claim he would have considered voting for Kyle Lieberman, and vice versa if the mood is the opposite at the time. That's why he and McCain were the only two Senators who didn't vote in that crucial vote. If Obama was a true leftie he would've voted NO and stuck to his guns, but the DLC in him told him not to show up.
