Tm22721, I think you are right. Given the very strong public support for change, I believe that Obama was uniquely situated to effect change, real change in the U.S. financial system. It is this potential that renders his failure so epic. If today, Obama has an enemy, it is himself - the image that he presented in '08, an image he has not lived up to. Some suggest he was a bankster sycophant from the get-go. I tend to believe that he "trusted in experts" as well as wanting to ingratiate his buddies (donors) on the Street and basically was led, rather than being in the lead. In short, Obama lacked the maturity or vigor to effect real change. I truly wish that he had had a primary contender to deal with because financial issues would have gotten an airing and he may have become less of a bankster sycophant.
