Obama’s First 100 Days According to Naomi Klein

9 May

Naomi Klein wrote an interesting piece for AlterNet recently in the lead up to the Obama Administration’s first 100 days:

…a growing number of Obama enthusiasts are starting to entertain the possibility that their man is not, in fact, going to save the world if we all just hope really hard. This is a good thing. If the superfan culture that brought Obama to power is going to transform itself into an independent political movement, one fierce enough to produce programs capable of meeting the current crises, we are all going to have to stop hoping and start demanding.”

It’s a different spin from the glowing reports you normally read. You can read the full article here.
