about the Obama presidency. The writer closes with a concern I have: Obama's popularity makes working against his rightish stands more difficult to resist, and, for Canada, more difficult for people there to resist Harper's rightish moves.


Not what I had hoped to achieve with a Democratic president replacing the Worst President Evah!

Hi vastleft. I cross post at Kos and the one from this morning has already gotten some interesting responses. I updated it with the Bagram story and am still getting lots of negative feedback. For all the criticism I've made of Obama I've never had such a sharp response. Fascinating...
