That, in general, has long been Obama's primary role in our political
system and his premiere, defining value to the permanent power factions
that run Washington. He prettifies the ugly; he drapes the banner of change
over systematic status quo perpetuation; he makes Americans feel better
about policies they find repellent without the need to change any of them
in meaningful ways. He's not an agent of change but the soothing branding
packaging for it.
