      when Hillary was a horrible dynastic old nutcracker and Obama was the progressive rock star.

      •  not at all. it's just that it's 2013 now (0+ / 0-)

        and now we all know (or should) that Obama is basically the same old news politically, and that the real import of his double-election is the social breakthrough of electing a "minority."

        I believed in his original campaign and believed him. I've voted for him twice--the first time with true enthusiasm and hope, the second, because I felt no other, better choice.

        but it is what it is. The real workings of power are just too in your face now with the overt corporatization of American politics. To be sure, there are some achievements that make material difference in the lives of many, but in the main the agenda is to shore up the status quo--i.e., keep the wealth and power right where they are. The whole stinking system is now "TBTF"--must sacrifice everything to keep the power distribution as is.
