It's nice to know that sometimes I'm as smart as a pretty good college professor. Everything Obama has done since the election has cemented my belief that the man is just another product of the Daley machine, whose first imperative is to get elected and then stay in office by any means necessary. He is an extremely intelligent man, and probably means what he said about bringing the country together. I think over time he's going to have problems with the more radical lefties in Congress, but if he plays his cards right and tweaks the Homeland Security/counterintelligence apparat, he can maintain W's winning streak against the Islamofascisti and be damned hard to beat in 2012. All of this, of course, will do much to rehabilitate W's reputation among a large part of the 52% who voted for Obama.
Unless, of course, his green/Wall Street allies fuck up the economy, in which case the winning streak is going to be hard to maintain anyway. Should be interesting. Instapundit
