    Not exactly... Maybe a better way to put is "are compelled to react."

    Re: Will You Vote for Obama?

    Well, according to the poll results, the majority of self described liberals would vote for Obama as it stands right now. Me and a few others don't know. It was surprising to see so few "no" votes, but I guess it shouldn't be. He would be hard to vote against using the lesser of two evils philosophy. And I do like to think he can become the liberal President we hope he can be, once worrying about a second term is over. But that may be just wishful thinking.

    It's not about them, it's about the benefits and advantages YOU will get with a Democrat Congress.

    I keep reminding myself of that as well. I let him slide on a few issues that other libs seem to get hung up on, like the tax breaks for the wealthy, the DREAM act, and the compromises on health care reform. But on his foreign policy issues I cannot let him slide. He isn't playing chess with our foreign policy, he is playing rock, paper, scissors, just like the neo-cons that came before him. So far, there doesn't seem to be anything nuanced or thought out about our foreign policy, and he seems to be playing by the same rule book as Cheney. That is why I voted "I don't know". In the end I can't see myself voting for a Republican, and there is no chance that a viable third party would stand a chance in 2012. So there it is...

    I was trying to think about what Republican I could possibly vote for. Jon Huntsman, maybe, but probably not. What Republican would you vote for?

    Will I vote for Obama....pretty likely.
    That is what I say to my liberal family and friends. I read a terrific article about Obama before the election that said as much. It came as no surprise to me that he would compromise and attempt to build consensus. I still think he's better than Clinton would have been. I was also very happy with the lame duck session. Someone in the media has been saying he's playing chess, while the rest of us are playing checkers. That's exactly what happened at lame duck and though the Bush tax cuts were extended, we got the end of DADT. I hope the next four years he's a chess savant for liberals, as he has nothing to lose. Which, BTW, I agree with.

    I didn't read the entire thread before replying, but I saw this quoted. Amen! I've heard the chess/checkers analogy too. I agree. We need to be more patient. I also agree with every word of this reply. Well said.

    It may have been Jon Stewart that used the chess analogy. I know Stewart used a Jedi analogy as well which I thought was appropriate. He could be playing Jedi mind tricks on Boehner and company.

    Could very well be Stewart! I can't remember where I heard it first. I like the Jedi analogy too and he may having been using that during the week leading up to the attack on bin Laden. He sure was cool, while all that was going on! It didn't show the night before operation, at the correspondent's dinner, that's for sure.
