The Obama Challenge
This is a line from a blog post by MJ Rosenberg:
Staking out some new territory here will make Obama look like the leader I think he is.I tend to prefer a President who knows how to get things accomplished. I generally prefer to see a demonstrated leadership ability or else some specific ideas, or a framework in which I can judge their decision process. I've yet to see that from Obama. I've gone through his legislative record during his Illinois tenure and was less than impressed.
So here's my Obama challenge. Can you name something specific that clearly demonstrates Obama's leadership and ability to get done? For the people in my top five list of candidates, I can name things off the top of my head which are pretty specific. I just can't find anything even comparable with Obama. Before I consider him as a serious presidential candidate, I'd like to know why I should vote for him. I just don't see him as being better than my other top contenders.
