U.S.: ObamaDemocrat spin on health care, military and war in Iraq, education, and race. That's where Obama is weak. Somebody ought to turn this dude. The Republicans in Illinois have been remiss in their duty.
The thing is, Obama is contradictory, on the one hand, he understands that government has limited role to play in our lives. On the other hand, he wants government intrusion. Then he doesn't want it cuz he's speaking out against the Patriot Act.
He spins the Democrat mantra about a divided America. What else is new.
Interestingly, as I said, Obama, in his vision of America, in his discourse on faith (he made some Biblical reference to the Book of Hebrews) and hope, unless he's a cynic, is very much of the same fabric as President Bush.
Kerry cannot begin to match Obama rhetorically, and I can't think of a Democrat who can. This guy could be president one day. He's good. He's sharp. He's an exciting speaker. He can get a crowd going.
My take, Obama is not fully grown politically. He's got promises to keep, and miles to go before he sleeps.
