I choose to think, for the moment, that Obama's mild-mannered reporter persona is in large part because he's been reluctant to smack down Hillary, given as how she's ostensibly a Dem, too. Some of his recent responses to McSame comments have been encouraging.

But I could be wrong. I was very enthusiastic about Bill until he'd been in office for a couple of months and it became apparent that he was an accommodationist.

He is showing encouraging signs.  If he is willing and able to be or to appoint and support a real bulldog there is hope for more than just a 4 yrs pause in the descent.  I understand the reluctance to get specific---but damn.
