The shape of things to come?
Based on his Senate history, Barack Obama as president would likely push to expand human rights and reduce poverty abroad using cooperation rather than confrontation, if foreign events permit. Aside from his vigorous opposition to the Iraq war, Obama spent more of his time on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on speeches and inspirational trips than on investigations and aggressive oversight.
With the bright lights of the media on Mr. Obama these days, it’s easy for people to get caught up in the “dream” of his probable nomination and his subsequent ascension to the presidency. That’s where the fantasy will end. Unfortunately, the MSM is completely in love with this guy, so the chances are nil that any of his extreme leftist beliefs will surface prior to November ’08.
