Barack Obama is:

. . . a lightweight, according to Daniel Drezner, who later backed off somewhat.

. . . a serious policy wonk, as massively documented at Obsidian Wings.

. . . potential evidence that the U.S. is no longer racist, according to M.J. Rosenberg at TPM Cafe

. . . a better and more substantive triangulator than Bill Clinton, according to Cass Sunstein.

. . . a disappointing purveyor of stereotypes about the left, according to Chris Bowers at MyDD

. . . pandering to religious tithers who go bankrupt, according to this story relayed by Crablaw.

. . . pandering to protectionists and the ethanol industry, according to the New Yorker.

. . . a graceful apologizer, as linked at the Economist.
