118. I think it all went off as planned
Your characterizations of history and of the Clintons do not make fact. Fact is, no one rises over such a short time without the full power of a political machine behind him.
Obama was the one they wanted elected, and they got him. You do know that Obama voted for the unconstitutional Patriot Act, don't you? And he voted for Cheney's Energy Bill, the funding of the occupation of Iraq, he voted in agreement with Bill Frist and the Republicans that Terri Shaivo needed government interference not family law. So it is pretty hard to understand how you can paint him as some subversive or agent of change. The Patriot Act. Yeah, he's a real iconoclast alright.

I wish we had Dennis Kucinich as our nominee, or at least John Edwards. But the beauty contest voters had to have some one tall and sartorialy acceptable. So that is what we have. A tall guy.
