  •  What makes you think (0+ / 0-)
    Presidential candidates who get too close to the office in question and who do not signal a complete willingness to play ball with the war profiteers and gangster bankers in charge, get stopped one way or another. Just ask Howard Dean - or better yet, Al Gore (h/t Gooserock).
    that this does not apply equally to Barack Hussein Obama?

    Al Gore had to leave office under humiliating circumstances before he did anything that remotely challenged the status quo. Up until then he was of use only because Clinton needed support from the southern states. I don't know the intent behind this omission but Clinton and Obama were idealists who were brought in line in exactly the same way you posit Dean and Gore were.
