Obama is no more an FDR Democrat than was Cold Warrior, hard-line Democrat Henry "Scoop" Jackson who served in the Senate for several decades following WWII. (Jackson was one of the founding fathers of the first "Committee on the Present Danger" back in the 1950s.)

If anything, one might consider Mr. "All Options are on the Table" Obama a continuation of this sordid, fear mongering tradition in post-WWII American politics, first appearing among Truman Democrats (who were the very personalities comprising the "military-industrial complex" cited by Eisenhower), and now residing among certain neo-con elements who bolted the Democratic Party during the Carter era.

Truth is Mr. Obama probably will NOT be getting Kucinich's endorsement. They are not cut from the same cloth, pure and simple. Mr. Obama reveals his true colors when he takes the Wall Street line on the issue of solving the home foreclosure problem. In both domestic and foreign policy matters, Sen. Obama and Rep. Kucinich share little in common.

There is, in fact, a reason Mr. Kucinich has not endorsed any of the Presidential candidates following his departure from the race. Think about it! If either of the front-runners could principally help his bid to keep his Congressional seat, do you not suppose he would tender his endorsement in return for their assistance? Of course he would. However, principled differences restrain his support. Thus, he remains the hope for those longing for a return to integrity in government, and a beacon shining upon political swine he principally opposes.

Kucinich supporters ought not be so quick to call into question his political integrity. Speculation about his intention, given his delay in submitting Articles of Impeachment against the President, is entirely counter-productive to the principled cause he and other representatives are championing.

Furthermore, those authors who impugn the motives of those who remain at the forefront of the impeachment effort ought know the distaste of those who admire the courage of politicians who dare raise the issue at all.

Bottom line, we ought to ceaselessly strive to be Americans capable of reason and intelligence, who are not easily duped, like a bunch of Jacobin French.
