Is Obama a Conservative?

Obama sees both sides now

San Francisco Chronicle
by Debra J. Saunders


It all looked so easy in August 2008, when Sen. Barack Obama spoke before the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The Democrats were going to win in November, storm Washington with their reforming ways, and because they were so much smarter than everyone else, they’d know how to get the American economy cooking. There was no doubt as the enthusiastic Invesco Field throng cheered and chanted, ‘Yes, we can.’ Well, never mind.
