So, it's been said on this board that Obama would make a bad president because he wouldn't "compromise." I thought I would re-read a January 2007 Harper's Magazine article by Ken Silverstein, and relate to you all what bits of it I found interesting. I wonder if stubborn radicalism is part of Obama's strategy... There's a perception on these boards that Obama is coming at things from the angle of socialism. What does lobbyist Mike Williams, vice president for legislative affairs at The Bond Market Association, have to say? Robert Harmala's impression of Obama came after being invited to see him speak by Lockheed Martin lobbyist Larry Duncan. Did Harmala find Obama to be a particularly stubborn pinko? You know, I've been wondering how inexperienced Obama has so handily out- fund-raised Clinton. Is it only electoral momentum? Can Mike Williams enlighten us again? I wonder what kind of Democrats Obama tends to endorse? I should note that Ken Silverstein was writing for Harper's Magazine, which is about as liberal as it gets for hifalutin east-coast magazines. I wonder what he thinks of Obama? Changing context, you say? Will it enlighten us regarding comparisons made between Obama and past figures, such as Jimmy Carter or George McGovern? Well, that's his opinion, I guess.
