excerpt --- The "progressive" Barack Obama that many supporters imagine is itching to break free once his corporate host's body is securely in the White House, remains dormant. Not even the groans of finance capital's collapse can waken him - a strong indication that no such progressive inner Obama exists. Certainly the progressive Obama was nowhere to be found when the candidate endorsed the $700-plus billion "cash for trash" Wall Street bailout. So eager was Obama to "save" the bankers, he forgot which party he was supposed to belong to and offered to allow Bush Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to keep his job in an Obama administration. Although the offer was coached in terms of facilitating a smooth "transition" from one regime to another, it is yet another telling indication that, in January, the baton will essentially be passed from one finance capital team wearing red shorts to another finance capital team in blue. blackagendareport.com - Obama and the Derivatives Merchants I have no doubt that Obama is going to win .. after all, he isn't running against anyone credible .. but if anyone thinks he's is going to bring "change" to the White House ..
