Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yep, it'd be a mistake to assume that Obama could govern on a different basis than that of the dynamics that brought him to power.

If he reaches the presidency by pandering to the middle with national security issues and waffling on Iraq, he won't benefit from a mobilization of the left to push for a progressive agenda which renders such a course very unlikely. I think most people know that, but they don't necessarily vote accordingly.
