that's where the division lies, not between "left" and "right"!
Or TOP and BOTTOM.
How much does he understand the situation? Who knows?

Read PM writings -- simulacra; they do not repersent anybody and do not reflect on anything: they just react.

my "political corner" [blog]?
... You are talking down to me, patronizing and treating as a mindless "fan of Obama." I don't think that you are interested in my process of choosing, but my vote only.
This is the surest way to lose elections.
I'll do my job making my mind better without your "packaged" sales messages.

Are you still voting "party ticket"? Democrats, Republicans? Now -- eat it!

And maybe I will.
... and the changes.
10.13.08 : Since the election's result became rather predictable, for a week I am making notes for "what is next?" -- what will be taking place under President Obama.
The last financial crisis demonstrated that the global situation is here. Now -- what do we do?
Will we have The Grand Depression or not is irrelavant. I call my diary.vtheatre.net -- Project "2008" = realization for anybody who want to see it : the United State of the Wolrd is the form of the new (global) goverment.
Here it is the Cizent of the World, President Obama.
What did you mean, sir, in Berlin last summer?
And what does it REALLY mean?
Here is the environment issues, and etc.
In 1995 I began to write Theology of Technology [as the last book of my nonfiction project], I even have TECH 2 edition! Time to move my "political" energy back there!
And this very note most likely belong to chapter Obama and not "Barack". Although the conflict between Individual and Communist srill an issue. For Barack or for me. For me this (libertarian) problem of living in the conditions of total communism is, of course, more important.
The rest id the previous notes on "Obama'08" :
Barack or Obama? The conflict. His and ours.[ Warning: The Content in this Article May be InaccurateReaders have reported that this story contains information that may not be accurate. ] diig.com -- how do you like it?

---- In study, evidence of liberal-bias bias ----
Cable talking heads accuse broadcast networks of liberal bias -- but a think tank finds that ABC, NBC and CBS were tougher on Barack Obama than on John McCain in recent weeks.

... my comment from digg.com:
Obama doesn't need media as others before him. "They" know it; they know that his popularity comes from the people, including his Internet financial support. THEY never were in this position, considering themselves as forth power (main power, of course) -- and "they" should wake up that (new) "Other America" doesn't watch or listen to celebrity, who have very little qualifications to be called "journalists".
There is a moment of revelation coming for (TV) Box-Rulers, as much as for the parties (king-makers) -- Hello, Hillary.
The change is not ahead of us, but behind. The fact that Obama is still running is the indication of that change which took place in USA.
Majority? We'll see it in Nov.
They would try to make him into a celebrity (American Idol), he is smart to fall into this trap (of depending on them) and therefore was labeled "arrogant",,, His (and ours) fight with old America is a fight with the media establishment, who took right to represent us long ago.
Change (institutional) has many forms (and faces) and it's not Obama alone, but people are making them. Watch the coverage of conventions -- media will be fighting for their survival and continue forced "packaging" with mindless one-lines and old known tricks. Obama's idea to do it at the sport area is not desire to be "original" but to get rid of (traditional) framing when the old guards will control the images. Enough, stop listening to myths about "liberals" in media -- the changes (including technology) taking power away from them; THEM, who are the part of establishment for decades!
Writing it make me realize that I need a page "Obama" on my "Personal Politics" pages [ filmplus.org/politics/2008.html ]
I have no system to work on questions I have about Obama:

Quote for myself :
I somehow doubt that a superpower, however defined (even as a democratic or liberal superpower) can ever practice a "libertarian" foreign policy.
Neither the populist nor the elite version of such a system seems to lend itself to limited government.
However, it can perhaps be made, with a protracted struggle, to uphold the anti-totalitarian and above all secular values for which it claims to be contending.
These are not easy times to be a libertarian, whether civil or social. But the easy time for that will never arrive.
It's supposed to be difficult.
Christopher Hitchens is a columnist for Vanity Fair. His latest book is A Long Short War: The Postponed Liberation of Iraq (Plume).
"Superpower"? Or maybe just the INERTIA, the track USA should change?
Is America became a superpower by default? Is (indirect) predesposition for it in the US Contitution?
"It's supposed to be difficult (to be an American)"? In the 3rd millennium (globalism) it's for sure.
Many corners of this "one world" live in different centuries, some in 1st millennium?
