Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

We hope Obama will be better. Can I expect him to be better ? I fear he will be a President hemmed in by such necessities that his hope of changing anything will be thwarted.

However I entertained no such hope of Bush. an enthusiastic wrecker.

I think he is going to be so goaded by circumstance that he will be forced to improvise, there is the opportunity.

I think Obama's going to be surrounded by the mainstream Democratic party establishment, and will do their corporation-funded bidding. Maybe not, though. He's pretty liberal and might have the guts to hold to that position after he gets into office. Maybe.

I have no illusions about Obama, I supported Edwards because he was the best available and could at least say "fight", but things are getting worse than even I expected and I think the handlers are going to be very busy covering their own asses and there will be significant change, some of it for the better.
