My reaction was, well, why buy the actor when you can have the real thing? I think that Clinton would have been the far better choice because she is far less of an actor than Obama.
I can easily picture Obama pretending to be one of the folks around MLK and I can also easily picture him in a role as business executive.
But then again you are far closer to the issue than me so you naturally know more about it. I mainly follow the economic stuff and my impression was that Obama is pure pragmatist who does not have any convictions. First a bit of stimulus, than austerity and now that elections are nearing again a bit of stimulus. Seems like the very opposite of your favourite politician who is far more consistent.
Oh sure, he's full of it.
