Scheer hypocrisy. You sit on some sort of pedestal, equipped with a crystal ball that tells only Robert Scheer what candidates will or will not deliver what we all want.
You disregard the difficulty, as this last week illustrates, of any nuanced intelligent thought--the simplest of truths--getting past the Clinton distortion filter in a Democratic race.
Obama is a genuine candidate of depth and clarity. Your beliefs are based on position statements that are designed because of the nature of the time frame we are in, to be all-purpose candidate statements spoken a year before the winning candidate takes office and inherits a different climate entirely.
You cannot even claim that Dennis Kucinich could live up to his campaign promises if he were to take the White House in 2009--because of the nature of campaigns in real time.
The public is better at judging, sensing, knowing in our gut who really cares for the plight of the battered American than you, genius.
