The more I read about Obama, the more I think of the Beatles' Nowhere Man.
Or T.S. Eliot's the Hollow Men:
Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;
This of course is not surprising for a modern politician. Some have noted already Robert Redford in "The Candidate."
But the danger is that, like others, Obama has tried to fill the void with the energy and drama of radical politics.
Worse, he would inherit a left-wing Congress.
