Andrew Sullivan:Can Barack Obama fix it? Yes he can

Andrew Sullivan, who write a blog for the Atlantic Monthly called The Daily Dish, has an excellent piece on TimeOnline entitled "Can Barack Obama fix it? Yes he can." I was turned on to Sullivan by my defiantly Libertarian friend, the Whited Sepulchre.

Quote:

    If you close your eyes and imagine what this combination of fiscal and foreign policy realism portends, you will come to a pretty obvious conclusion. This Democratic liberal is actually, when it comes down to it, a man almost entirely within the mainstream spectrum of the European centre right. Imagine a Cameron-style Tory becoming president of the United States and try to come up with something he would do differently.

Worth a read!

Andrew Sullivan is an interesting character.
He is Gay, and a devout Roman Catholic.
He's a Brit who has chosen to live in the U.S.
He describes himself as a Classical Libertarian Conservative.

The Wikipedia article on Sullivan is worthwhile:

Look at who he's endorsed in various elections.

I owe you big-time for turning me on to his blog -- the man is prolific!

He was on Colbert back before the election -- a fascinating interview. You can catch it on ColbertNation.
