In August 2008 Paul Jay spoke with Naomi Klein about Obama’s campaign and promises. Two years down the road we can look back and compare what he said with what he’s done.
Obama’s foreign policy positions have become indistinguishable from those of McCain. His campaign was virtually built around absorbing, co-opting and quieting the anti-war/anti-fascist/anti-imperialist movements.
How far do you go before winning becomes losing, and becomes just a shiny new paintjob hawked by a very good salesman?
