      I serve on a city commission. I practice public interest law in an "inner-city" community. I'm well aware of the realities of trying to accomplish good things against the obstacles that exist.

      I'm not critical of Obama because he hasn't solved all of the problems of the world. I'm critical of more specific things that he could do and hasn't, or shouldn't do, and has.

      For example, when the bailout first came to a vote, the Congressional Black Causes as a whole voted against it. Obama was brought in and he personally called a bunch of them and got them to switch their votes. The CBC then provided the margin for its eventual passage on the second vote. That was an action that was completely within his power.
