A year ago tomorrow we woke up and elected the first-ever black President. A couple of weeks ago at the Boston Book Festival,
a panel of pundits kicked off what is sure to be an avalanche of
first-year retrospectives on the Obama presidency. Surprise: nobody's
happy. And this, folks, is the loyal opposition.
says the first year of Obama has been marked by the "dis-involvement of
all the people who helped make him president in the first place,"
adding that if he sticks to his current course, it will be "very
dificult to accomplish the change he promised and that we need."
