Steve Benen has a must-read post on efforts by the right wing to find a negative frame for Barrack Obama. They still have nothing.
I’m warming up to the idea of Obama as president, even relative to my 2004 pick Wesley Clark. At the very least he seems to have a good sense for making useful things happen in the real world. Another promising quality is that he seems comfortable defusing adversarial situations in a way that both parties benefit, which is as accurate a description as any of what a good president does. A great president, of course, builds an unstoppable mandate and shapes the country in his image. But that is also what a catastrophically terrible president does. We have had enough of those lately, so for now I’ll settle for good.
Chat about whatever.
