Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wow. Great rant, melo. I hope you're right.
But I no longer believe Obama really wanted the things he appeared to want. His great talent is to be everything to everyone, and in the end, when faced with a big slam from the real world, that particular talent is revealed as useless for fixing things.

I agree with the thrust of your comment, and the passionate hope you declaim. It's another huge opportunity for him, but alas- one he will once again walk away from.

Consider the possibility that there are others who might be able to step in and seize the moment.

Could that happen?
How might that happen?
The big question:
What would success or failure mean for Europe?

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
