Let The Obama Cynicism Begin
I don't blame Obama for going on the offensive, but what happned to getting away from cynicism?
Seriously, I think his campaign theme is stupid. He's been brutalized by the right-wing ("is he 'black enough'?", John Howard, the madrassa thing, etc.) and it's stupid to talk about elevating the debate. The other side lowered the debate a long time ago. His anti-cynicism thems is pretty naive. I'm glad he's starting to fight back. As president, sitting around and singing Kumbaya won't cut it. Obama is trying to copy Bill Clinton and we know how divisive and polarizing he turned out.
