  •  The truth is that the fight was lost (0+ / 0-)

    when Obama was in law school, but not in the way this person said. If you consider Obama's biography, you can see that he made his choices about who he was going to ally himself with in the process of actually going to law school. He gave up on a life of pounding the streets on the South Side of Chicago fighting for the powerless in favor of the gild-edged resume of Harvard Law School and the Harvard Law Review. To get to the top of the Law Review, I understand that he successfully presented himself as a sort of middle-man between the left and right, who were then in a bitter struggle for control over it. The template for the rest can all be found right there.
