OBAMA MINDREADING….This is spooky. I was planning to write almost this exact post, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet. So today’s Obama commentary is outsourced to Ezra Klein.

Like Ezra, I too think Obama has huge potential to move the country in a more liberal direction. So far, though, he hasn’t been willing to take the risk of actually trying to do it. I’d really, really like to see him start.
