158. And our realistic other options were the following:
1) another corporatist (Hillary, a hawk who is less of an economic progressive than her husband)
2) a philanderer who would have put the whole thing at risk (Edwards)

First AA president? First female president? I want to know if we're ever going to get a real, honest-to-goodness PROGRESSIVE president again. I'm afraid it's never going to happen unless we make the ruling class start fearing us.

It's not just that Obama's a corporatist. It's that the entire system is broken and rotted THANKS to unbridled capitalism run FOR the needs, and at the behest, of corporations and the wealthy. You can't BE president unless you're vetted by the wealthy. That's a product of plutocracy. It needs to change and change FAST.
