Barack Obama is:

. . . a lightweight, according to Daniel Drezner, who later backed off somewhat.

. . . a serious policy wonk, as massively documented at Obsidian Wings.

. . . potential evidence that the U.S. is no longer racist, according to M.J. Rosenberg at TPM Cafe

. . . a better and more substantive triangulator than Bill Clinton, according to Cass Sunstein.

. . . a disappointing purveyor of stereotypes about the left, according to Chris Bowers at MyDD

. . . pandering to religious tithers who go bankrupt, according to this story relayed by Crablaw.

. . . pandering to protectionists and the ethanol industry, according to the New Yorker.

. . . a graceful apologizer, as linked at the Economist.

(Previous posts on this subject here, here, and here.) 

What do you think?  Is he:

(A) too good to be true? 

(B) not good enough?

(C) merely better than anyone else on the horizon, and what do we have a right to expect anyway?

(D) none of the above?
