Conciliator Or Collaborator?

David Bromwich offers up a lengthy explanation of how the young Obama’s grappling with racial identity and his self-perception as a transformative “man of genius” have shaped his desire for unity and consensus above all else, and his preference for words over deeds, but it’s the wrong explanation, proceeding from a faulty premise.

Obama doesn’t half-ass progressive policies because he craves bipartisanship or is bad at follow-through, he half-asses them because he doesn’t want them.  Obama isn’t some weak or foolish liberal hamstrung by personal drama, he’s a corporate tool who uses the DLC strategy of packaging conservatism as cunning political positioning rather than plain old selling out for money.
