I agree, with an exclamation point (although I don't use them, as I am over 12). Let's be honest, Glenn Greenwald has it right, liberals projected onto Obama what we wanted to see and dismissed what was obviously there. Obama is a savvy politician and not the Second Coming. He isn't any different, aside from the hue of his skin, than all his predecessors... and to think he would be, just based on that superficial aspect, is stereotypical racism actually, as Clarence Thomas would agree. The pick of Warren is akin to the "get over it" statement to Hillary supporters, mostly women, when they felt unheard. He knew he could, because what?--Hillary supporters would go with McCain? Yeah, sure. In spite of some freaky Florida retiree, we may be women, but we aren't brain dead. Similarly with the gay vote, who are gays going to support in spite of this outrageous slight (and I believe it is also to women as well as gays)? Well, nobody. The lesser of the evils is always something one can bank on. Yes, we'll get the lesser of evils, how could any (elected) politician be more evil then Bush/Cheney? But we won't get real "change." Just more Democratic compromise.
