1. Obama has a Dem Congress backing him and an electorate more progressive than he is.
Edited on Mon Feb-16-09 09:12 PM by Captain Hilts
He's following a president that completely de-legitimized the Republican party. A lot of my Republican friends felt their party had to be punished.

It's as much about Bush as about Obama.

The times he and Clinton are in are completely different.

No comparison.
