Barack Obama: Change We Can Believe In

Memo to Barack Obama: Never use a preposition to end a sentence (or phrase) with.

But that's not really my point here.

The point is that I really like this slogan. I think it's  a great one for him.


Because I can definitely believe in change when it concerns Barack Obama.  You can guarantee that if he says something today with absolute certainty, that he'll change his opinion on it tomorrow.

And more and more people are starting to notice. Even Markos Moulitsas (of Daily Kos):

Maybe what looks like cowering to me is really part of that "moving to the center" stuff everyone keeps talking about. But there is a line between "moving to the center" and stabbing your allies in the back out of fear of being criticized. And, of late, he's been doing a lot of unecessary stabbing, betraying his claims of being a new kind of politician. Not that I ever bought it, but Obama is now clearly not looking much different than every other Democratic politician who has ever turned his or her back on the base

Expect more and more "politics as usual" from this "new kind of politician" as the campaign continues.

Barack Obama: Change We Can Believe In.
