    The question is, will the people who voted for him hold him accountable for what he promised? Or I guess the better question is do the majority of people who voted for him even know/care what he promised?

    Most people won't care. He's already slapped every anti-war voter in the face with every single cabinet pick, and not a peep from the American "left".

    It might even take some of you right-wingers to make him accountable!

    I voted for him on green jobs, not the war. If he and the dems don't come through in spades on green jobs, I won't vote for them next time around.

    I did think he was better for the economy, but I don't know how to judge him on that, will feel it out as i go.

    Don't worry. Voters don't hold politicians accountable anyway. There's always of course the select few, but never even close to being enough to make any kind of difference. That's why the pols know they can get away with it. It's not limited to any specific party or ideology. Not many conservatives held Bush accountable for everything he failed to come through on, which was MOST of his 2000 platform.
