I thought a big part of Barack Obama’s appeal was the he was Mr. Bi-Partisan. He supposedly can bridge the gap between Republicans and Democrats. So why did he say this:

“I don’t think me calling House Republican members would have been that helpful, I tend not to be that persuasive on that side of the aisle,” he said.

Ok, I’ll give him an A for honesty, but does that mean that he won’t look for middle of the road solutions? Does that mean he really means what he says on economic policy? Is he really against free trade? Neither of these candidates is inspiring; I probably won’t vote for either one. But Obama is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. I fear for capitalism if this man is elected and given a veto proof majority in Congress. The old hands in the party will run over him roughshod.
