Perfect


by Turkana

This ardent Obama supporter's popular Daily Kos diary defines how much things have changed. Quoting consummate Villager Al Hunt, she celebrates that Obama is pissing off both the left and the right. Let's just forget about the implied false equivalency, and get to the point: imagine if Obama had run, openly, as a centrist. Imagine if he'd stated that his policies would piss off the left. Would he have had so much passionate support in the liberal blogs? Would Clintonism have been so vilified by the people now celebrating Obama for, essentially, reviving it?

We liberals had no credible candidate, but a lot of people deluded themselves into thinking otherwise. Some now openly embrace the centrism they once deplored. Did I mention that things have changed?
