Of course Obama wants desperately to be President. He’s closer to the office than any non-white has ever been. He’s so close, he can feel the reins of power already. They are intoxicating, I’m sure. He’s secured the nomination, has been cited as being ahead of McCain in double digits in at least 2 prominent polls, and just needs to bring it down the home stretch.
So when he takes all that he has done which has gotten him to this point and turns his back on it, what is he thinking? That he will get Joe Mildly Conservative to take a second look at him and go, “oh, he’s willing to reverse himself on a passionately held position, piss on Cheney’s piss on the Constitution, and do what it takes to torture and kill them dirty terrorists, so I think I’ll switch from Johnny Mac to him. Hell, I always did like that mocha look”.
Yeah. I can see him working his magic in the middle. Now there’s a winning strategy for you. I’m sure everyone on the left (who put him where he is today) will take it. Like they take everything. They’ll still run out and vote for him.
Sure they will.

Then, there's this. And this. And this. And those were easily found.
Not that I'm really complaining. Better to know the man as soon as possible and we now know him. I honestly just wonder - does he THINK this is the best strategy to win, or is there something else going on? Is this the fee that has to be paid to Corporation America in order to stand at the top and pretend you are calling the peoples' shots?
Fuck the bullshit.
