Obama "Post-Partisan"? Ask John Roberts
An EXCELLENT comment was left by Chris Baker at this post over at InsideCatholic:
... I'm still a little confused on how Obama "brings us together". There isn't one single issue where Obama deviates from liberal Democratic orthodoxy.(emphasis added)
One perfect example: regardless of ideology just about everyone agreed that John Roberts was superbly qualified and suited to sit on the Supreme Court. A great opportunity to set aside rancor and division, right? Plenty of Democrats in the Senate voted for Roberts. Did Obama?
Nope. It's nice that he doesn't call Republicans names (yet), or threaten to impeach Bush or Cheney at the drop of a hat, but that's not enough, ist it? One thing about McCain, he can point to plenty of concrete examples where he's bucked the GOP/conservative line. Obama can't do that...
This comment and Rick Garnett's post on "Obama and the Pragmatic Center" at Vox Nova are the best arguments I've seen that McCain has much better "post-partisan" credentials than Obama. But such arguments will fall on deaf ears in the midst of our Nation's collective Obasm because McCain doesn't look pretty and say flowery things.
