Interesting column about Obama-buyer's remorse. I voted for Hillary in the primaries--or rather, I should say I caucused in her favor. When Obama took it, I got behind him with equal amounts of enthusiasm and practicality. I knew that when he said he'd have us out of Iraq and Afghanistan quickly, that it was an unrealistic promise. I hoped he'd keep his word about stem cell research and health care reform. As for the rest, well, the election was a fait accompli. I'd take whatever came--no choice really. I've supported this president, but at this point? I'm just tired. I think the columnist may be right.
