Not really, because, Obama is not a socialist, and cannot deliver socialism, 
so if people vote for him thinking they're going to get socialism, and then 
Obama does what he will most likely do, carry forward a bourgeois programme, 
people will think that is what socialism is, and be disappointed in it. It's 
a form of brand dilusion, so to speak.
