Biden is a mistake. He is further proof that Obama, despite his rhetoric and optimism, is just like everyone else. Meet the new boss, as the song goes, same as the old boss.
Still, here goes: In 2008, I should have dispensed with the optimism, stopped
playing the inside-the-Beltway pundit game of influence, and talked straight. I
should have written that, unless the new administration fundamentally changed
U.S policy -- reducing the nuclear arsenals, cutting the military budget,
launching a full-speed effort to halve carbon emissions, abandoning the
nonsensical "war on terror" -- we would run the risk of Goldilocks.
Hopey McChange my left nut. He's just like McCain, but sexier. And we get to choose between our own Dum and Dee this fall, it seems.
Call me when the revolution starts.
