Rebounding with Obama

Filed under: Obama — zundel @ pm

from Eric:
Rebounding with Obama by John Feffer in World Beat 2008-11-11 published by Foreign Policy In Focus, a project of the Institute for Policy Studies

He’s a good listener. He’s patient. He shows grace under pressure. He’s good with little kids. What a catch!

He’s a policy wonk who deflected most questions during the campaign with vague pronouncements of change (a wise strategy but not exactly love-connection material).

After all, the Bush administration had an abusive relationship with just about everyone in the world. (Well, perhaps the relationship with Tony Blair was a little bit kinkier.)

Follow up:
Obama’s Victory” comment from John Cavanagh, Director of the Institute for Policy Studies

In other words, can’t the goal be bringing the top down as well as bringing the bottom up?

Yuck! Nice article, but the publisher has a strong bias.
