In the past few days...
Barack Obama reversed himself on the FISA legislation, ticking off the liberal netroots.
Barack Obama reversed himself on public financing, ticking off Democratic elites & the "Good Government" folks.
And Barack Obama reversed himself on DC's handgun ban, which will tick off every limousine liberal from here to Timbuktu.
First, it's harder than it looks to be the "most liberal member of the U.S. Senate" and run in a presidential general election.
Second, maybe "Senator Obama" would make a good "President Obama". Maybe not. It's not like there's much of a Senator Obama record (state or U.S.) to look at.
But one thing is crystal clear from his record: Whatever Senator Obama had promised the "Democratic wing of the Democratic Party" in order to win the Democratic Primary, those "promises" better help General Election Candidate/President Obama acquire and use power.
Because if they don't...
Now what about Obama's promises on Iraq?
Brace yourself, surge opponents. Brace yourselves.
Change we can believe in our foot.
