    is it Obama's fault? or the fault of the Democrats who don't support his initialives? such as the Dems who blocked the public option?

    how are you trying to keep MLK's dream alive when you are mostly helping white folks in terms of teaching them how to think critically in regard to politics(princeton)...

    he has some good points but it's hard not to see him as a self serving individual with this latest media blitz on obama....imho

    one love
