Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Either you're too optimistic or I'm too cynical.

Putting him on par with Jimmy Carter is probably not unfair all things considered. Which is still unimpressive, but as recent US presidents go it's a big step forward.

I'm prepared to be surprised, but so far Obama doesn't look like more than a Carter with a snazzier marketing department and the advantage that the other wing of the Corporate Party has shot itself in both feet, a kneecap and one arm with an elephant gun.

Still, Obama is preferable to John "Nuke Iran" McCain.
