More Audacity, Less Hope


President Obama's light is seriously dimming.

A pretty boy Republican has stolen the Boston Senate seat that has belonged to the Kennedys for decades right out from under, and partisanship is storming away at an all-time high in American politics.

Read Konrad Yakabuski's excellent coverage in this morning's Globe.

Even a grand old Democratic warrior like Harry Belafonte, speaking the other day with Tavis Smiley is disenchanted with the directions and tones coming these days from the White House.

If the health care bill is lost, Obama may have the shortest effective presidency in history.

May all of this get much better - and soon!

when they call people who are against the Health Bill racists, it is game over.

David , I dont think that anyone could be president of the USA in these troubled times and hope to be popular. Obama must wake up some days and wonder why hes even trying to change the mindset of old white Americans. While I am not a supported of Obama ( Hillary would have been a better choice) the thought of Mcain/Pallin was frightening.

So wish him luck because hes going to need it.
