More superficial and short-sighted clap-trap. The D/R Corporate party cannot represent the interests of the vast majority of people - the winner takes all, BigMoney, Corporate personhood system ensures this.

Folks who consider themselves progressive ought to be more knowledgable about the systemic and structural barriers to democracy.

To the author: Please read some Steven Hill, Sheldon Wolin, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Chris Heddges and even good ol Ralph Nader.

After that perhaps we can have a meaningful discussion.

I completely disagree with JonnyJames, and I have read lots of his suggested authors, + Chalmers Johnson. Of courde the very undemocratic system is against it, but change is possible with a bit of backbone and judgment, which Obama lacks.
Reagan appealed to the population (lying of course, but with a smile) and "W" lied with force. Obama seems not to care, and panders to his enemies like a craven coward; Now he is selling WMD to nuclear-armed India, while loving Israel and damning Iran. Is this still Bush?
