Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
mmm, well, accusations of cynicism --The Cynic Card!-- are best played in literary salons, where suspension of disbelief is the premise of discussion rather than the conclusion of it.

A trail of speeches and essays are not "dots" in any event, but explicit declarations of Mr Obama's philosophical interests and political priorities. There are more examples of course. The most bizarre --in juxtaposition to the Nobel committee's criteria-- is an article he wrote for CFR (Foreign Affairs, 2007). Jerome covered it, remember? (free) Then there was one for CFR "Campaign 2008" collection of candidates' foreign policy positions (now embargoed). I'd the distinct impression that one ghost-writer produced them all. Sadly, I didn't copy that; iirc, teh shizle was about 20pp.

Say what you will. Dude's an talking-point automaton.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
