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.


    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.
