Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
great comment in a great diary...

Frank Schnittger:

In the first world view, Obama is the supremely capable technocrat.  Soon it will be business as usual, and the USA will once again rule the world for the common good.  

this is my take. it seems delusional, but that might be from too much ET!

as well as supremely capable technocrat, he is a 'golden child', with a sunny and disarming personality, staying light in a maelstrom of dark forces, making it look easy, grace under pressure, as amiable as he is competent.

but even the most competent leader can quail before impossible odds, and the perfect storm likely to hit will take extremely nimble thinking and decisions to stay so sunny through.

I loved this diary for how it leverages a bigger picture through gravitas into the dkos flamefest, now i'll go read it at the orangerie.

considering how often you have got your kicks throwing apples of discord-like diaries about taxing fossil fuels/gasoline over there, it's really nice to see you dispensing balsam like this, heh.
