Some liberals aren’t waiting to see the entire Obama Cabinet to declare it a disappointing flashback. In the Nation, William Greider writes that Obama’s “lineup for key governing positions has opted for continuity, not change,” and even seems “designed to sustain the failing policies of George W. Bush.”
While acknowledging the remarkable economic circumstances of the moment, Grieder writes: “His victory, it appears, was a triumph for the cautious center-right politics that has described the Democratic Party for several decades. Those of us who expected more were duped, not so much by Obama but by our own wishful thinking.”
