I'm pretty sure Barack Obama has just ensured that he'll be a one-termer. Apparently he's forgotten that the groundswell of popular support that put him in office was largely because he promised a withdrawal from Iraq. Now, not only is the slow withdrawal he's actually undertaken a far cry from what The Candidate promised - but he's going to slow or halt that withdrawal.
I find myself eagerly awaiting 2011. It will be interesting to see the Democratic Party primary process. Will someone, a REAL progressive, a REAL peace candidate, stand up? Or will they bank it all on Barry?
Doesn't matter. Pretty sure I'll end up supporting as loudly as possible the candidate for the Green Party or any Independent who has the balls to stand up for peace and an end to corporatism.
