    you and I would see eye-to-eye on a much more regular basis. I'm a Democratic Socialist.

    it's the 'doesn't want what America wants' part that is not only insulting but also hurtful to say.

    I'm not begrudging you that. kos is not known for his tact, though. He said something nasty about Dennis Kucinich last year and I was pissed at him for a good 6 months about it.

    I think the part that I disagree with you the most, though, in your reply to me is when you said

    i believe in democracy.

    There are many links I could cite to prove to you that President Obama no longer seems to be all that interested in democracy, and further links I could recommend positing that President Obama himself is not interested in Democratic ideals, and most certainly not the Democratic Party Platform.

    And another thing:

    because believing in sharing power excludes me from being left or right.  

    Barack Obama does not share power. Barack Obama cedes power.

    And that, my friend, is precisely the problem.

    Obama would do well to understand that while democracy depends on intelligent compromise, it also depends on the ill-tempered gripers and groaners out in the street. -- Ta-Nehisi Coates
