Will Barrack Obama reform America?

I've been reading quite a bit about Obama in the last few months.

The best piece I've read on whether Obama will succeed in genuinely reforming America is by James W. Skillen, the President of the Center for Public Justice in DC.

Skillen is an elegant and insightful writer - and he has the rare gift (for an American) of being self-critical. Here is a sample of his writing:

"Americans can more easily say what they don't want than what they want. And when they express their desires, it is usually in the contradictory language of asking government to elevate the nation and solve big problems but without raising taxes or burdening them with too much red tape."

For Skillen's full piece, titled "Obama for President?" and posted on January 19, 2007, go to: Sphere: Related Content
