Many liberals are starting to question if Barack Obama will be the liberal change agent they believed he would be.
It could very well be that he's a closet moderate who's only appeared to be liberal for the last 10 years or so.
It could also be that he knows the best way to get a liberal agenda enacted is to go slow, appear more moderate than he is, and slip far left policies in quietly after most of the country has stopped paying attention.
I'd love to be wrong, but I suspect we'll see a stronger move the left in time. We've seen that Mr. Obama is a master at political maneuvering. I think this is just more of the same.
