Obama could have been more. I think he had it in him but with Mitch McConnell holding the reins in the Senate he didn't have much of a chance. The power of big money and the wielders of that power (old white men) need to be removed from the equation. Either by voting them out or by them dying out. I don't care which. The neo-liberal world of the conservative Republican (and mainstream Democrat) is on its last legs. Biden/Harris will hopefully be a one term team with something like Harris/AOC to follow-up in 2024. We're way overdue for a substantial reshaping of the economic/social/environmental landscape. It's gonna take fresh eyes and new ideas to navigate the coming decades.
