The Real Obama

It seems that Obama's much vaunted post-partisan, new brand of politics is somewhat more different that some Democrats believed it to be. Rather than ushering in a new era of unity and co-operation his campaign is actually all about him- and to hell with everyone else. Even his own party. He's already shown contempt for Hillary's supporters and now it would appear that he's out to annoy everyone else in the Democrat Party who isn't on the inside of his campaign.

After a brief bout of Obamamania, some Capitol Hill Democrats have begun to complain privately that Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is insular, uncooperative and inattentive to their hopes for a broad Democratic victory in November.

“They think they know what’s right and everyone else is wrong on everything,” groused one senior Senate Democratic aide. “They are kind of insufferable at this point.” …


If only they had chosen a candidate who wasn't such a complete unknown rookie they might actually have been able to find out some of this before Primary season even began. As it stands I'm sure a lot of Democrats are beginning to become wistful for the days when Hillary seemed to be a shoe-in.
