3. I don't know, Enthusiast.
Edited on Wed Jul-10-13 02:00 PM by No Elephants
He seems like someone I probably would have supported enthusiatically (no pun intended) before Obama. However, now, I don't know. He looks as though he (Brown) spent his entire life either doing serving the public or cynically preparing to get the Democratic Presidential nomination. Same is true of Obama, Kerry, and Bill Clinton). And, like Kerry and the Bushes, he went to Yale.)

It matters very much which one of those things is reality.

Thing is, with these guys, you never know until one of them takes office and starts governing.

Looking at Obama's life story and early positions on various issues, one would have assumed a leftie.

I should say, Obama's initial positions on various issues--the questionnaire he signed in 1994, the first time he ran for the Illinois Senate. When controversial issues came to a vote, he either was absent or voted present, which turned out to be convenient when he ran for President in 2008.

On the other hand, I hate to get so cynical that I distrust people who spent a lifetime in public service.

I just really don't know.
