The only way he will disappoint people is if he doesn't bring the war in Iraq to a close, or even makes no move to.  Most of the passion behind Obama started because of his stand on the war.  Both Hillary and Edwards voted in favor of the war, and, though Hillary tries to equivocate quite a bit, she hasn't apologized for it. If Hillary couldn't make a moral stand agains the right wing back in 2002, when most Dems knew Bush was simply picking a fight, what kind of Commander in Chief would she have made?  The same for Edwards, give me someone who was right from the start, that, at least, shows judgment.

I have to take a bit of exception with the word "politician" being a dirty name.  They are all politicians - Edwards, McCain, Hillary, Bill.  To single one out and not the others is a bit disingenuous.  Maybe people mean he's too good a politician?  If he was a bad one, like Dukakis, do you know how vulnerable to attack he would be?

And the right wing propaganda machine has got a hold of him, none of the typical narratives ("flip-flopper," which actually applies more to McCain, "unpatriotic," "radical," and, of course, "he's too liberal and will raise your taxes") have worked yet, though, so they are grasping for straws.

They were far more prepared to take on Hillary, who they assumed would be the nominee this year.  Their problem is Obama is pretty much squeaky-clean, which is why the keep doing the guilt by association crap.
