Who is Barack Obama?

October 16, 2008

Besides the presumptive next President of the United States.

I previously took shots at answering that question here and here.

However, the best analysis I have read comes from Jim Lindgren, when he wrote:

People should not confuse Obama’s personality with his political orientation: by personality, Obama is the most reasonable, thoughtful, moderate person on either national ticket. He is definitely NOT an ideologue. Yet by political orientation, Obama is the most liberal or progressive candidate to be a party nominee for president in at least a half century — probably ever. That explains why he is in essence a radical incrementalist.

Since he wrote that sentence at the beginning of September, I have observed that it seems to fit well with the the Barack Obama I have observed.
