Defending Obama is a waste of energy.  The important thing to remember 
in this entire election cycle is that the reactionary Bush regime was 
defeated, several million people voted who never did before--many of 
them because they were convinced Obama would bring progressive change, 
and most importantly, the Left must take advantage of the defeat of the 
Bushites and the desire of a large number of voters for a more just 
world.  There will be opportunities to push the entire agenda 
leftward--we should understand these opportunities and mobilize the 
people, not cry in alarm or say "I told you so" when Obama acts like the 
capitalist politician he is.
