What this reveals is the frustration of so many veterans on the left 
that the Greeks did not live up to their expectations. I thought this 
summed it up nicely:

It is revealing of the political landscape in Europe - indeed, the world 
- that everyone's dreams of socialism seemed to rest on the shoulders of 
the young Prime Minister of a small country.  There seemed to be a 
fervent, irrational, almost evangelical belief that a tiny country, 
drowning in debt, gasping for liquidity, would somehow (and that somehow 
is never specified) defeat global capitalism, armed only with sticks and 
rocks.
