People really thought voting for and electing Obama meant Change. ("The more fools they," he said cynically.) There is no doubt Obama is better than Bush and was better than McCain. There is no doubt, in my mind, Obama has shown himself a Tweak Around the Edges Centerist who is unable to accomplish or ignorant of what needs to be done to get the US out of the mess.
The key to change is the 2010 Senate races. Unfortunately I don't see any substantial change in the way Democratic candidates are selected, thus, the way their campaigns are run. IF the Dems run the same campaigns they've been running for the last 20 years November could get real ugly.
The only hope I see is the GOP is in even worse shape. Palin seems to have been an attempt by the GOP Leadership to rein-in the Looney Right and, by and large, it has seemed to fail. Huckabee seems to have faded, tho' it's too soon to count him out. The person who seems to be doing the best out of the mess, and even creating a Left-Right alliance, is: Ron Paul.
And THAT I don't understand.
Ever since I learnt about confirmation bias I've started seeing it everywhere
