Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"I'm wondering how many times the dKos voters are going to get screwed before they notice how the game works."

Uh, "lots of times" would be an approximate guess.

There is no question that the Democratic party is better than the Republican party, but there is also no question that they are both corrupt and controlled by industry. There's no reason to expect Obama's term to be significantly different than Clinton's, and Clinton brought us all sort of fun things like the SUV 6000 pound tax exemption (actually he just extended it in a deal with the UAW), the gutting of the welfare system, the usual American sabre rattling in the mid-East, inaction on air and water quality issues, a lousy approach to single payer health, etc., etc.

The weatherman predicts more of the same, if you need weathermen to know which way the wind blows, so to speak...
