I share Novick's concerns.

David Sirota (Ghettoization & The Difference Between Politics & Policy) says, "...it is notable that Obama's policy appointments ...are almost all right-of-center, Establishment choices - and almost none are...movement progressives. At the same time, many Obama appointments to exclusively political positions –that is, positions that are focused on selling policy, whatever that policy may be - are terrific movement progressives..."

In other words, Obama is taking essentially right-of-center, right-of-Clinton policy and packaging it in "progressive" terms, just as he did in his campaign.

Too bad Novick decided not to support a progressive for president, as he did in '96.
