    I do not see the chasm between the values of the two men you describe.  

    Do I disagree with the Obama administration?  If I get started on my disagreements on education I might not have time for anything else.  

    I see things from Obama that frustrate me, I see others that inspire me.  I do not view him as an idol, a god, a saint.  I understand he is a politician.  And that puts him in a very different place than King was.

    I think the prophetic voice will rarely come from an elected leader, although one may reflect a prophetic vision first proclaim by others.

    It is why I think our voices still matter.

    do we still have a Republic and a Constitution if our elected officials will not stand up for them on our behalf?
