    He needs to correct all the lies and misrepresentations about libralism. Actually he might be getting up behind that podium tho it's sill a bit early to tell. Hopefully he's learning to start the bidding high when proposing policy so that he has entry of room to come down and win what can be reasonably expected. Again too early to say.

    But for now I'm cautiously hopeful that he's learning and listening to our side this time. Don't forget, he's a moderate with a bit of a conservative streak. I doubt that he'll ever be another FDR. But he's generally standing behind liberal principles and may still move further left. We'll see.
