The thing about logic is, your conclusions are completely a function of your initial assumptions and boundaries. That's where the real meat is. Besides, Obama's never been about making honest arguments anyway -- the Obama machine may be even more reliant on marketing and PR flackery than Bush's gang was. Just compare his campaign promises (or even his current populist rhetoric) with his actual policies.

Of course Obama is still trying to sell us the Insurance Profits Protection & Unaffordable Care Act, they're pushing a defective product. Defective by design, but quite successful in heading off real reform.

Oh, and if Bill Clinton feels like explaining something, maybe he could tell us why the effects of NAFTA-GATT and other DLC/Republican bright ideas were exactly what his critics predicted rather than what he kept promising. He might be lucky to be remembered for Monica rather than for doing so much to lock in our current status quo.
