There is a lot of speculation about how Obama will govern. This is natural considering the unsubstantial nature of his record. Yes, his entire past is that of a leftist, but his willingness to abandon positions and his frequent unwillingness to even take a posistion, allow pundits to predict his future according to their biases. What is being missed, or at least not discussed is Obama’s core principle – the acquisition of power.
The real question is now that he has acquired he most powerful position in the world, what is he going to do with it?
