How The Left Turns

According to the NYT, the Left is turning on Obama:

“I’m disgusted with him,” said Ms. Shade, an artist. “I can’t even listen to him anymore. He had such an opportunity, but all this ‘audacity of hope’ stuff, it’s blah, blah, blah. For all the independents he’s going to gain, he’s going to lose a lot of progressives.”

Ah, go to hell, Shade. We're Clintonians now.

UPDATE: New Newsweek poll: Obama and McCain in dead heat. He needs to take the advice of the Ariana Huffington and Ms. Shade pivot back to his base on the hard left. Isn't that what Karl Rove would advise?

Exactly. Obama is willing to disappoint the fruticake left by pivoting away from seemingly principled progressive positions to appeal to independents and the Clintonian center.

Not very principled but possibly effective.

Well, he is, after all, the candidate of "change."

Blather. The Affirmative Action Candidate need not worry about the Far Lefties. He's got them blind partisan kooks locked. Who else would they vote for?
