Actually, it's the opinion of my former bosses at Stratfor that Obama's foreign policy and his attempts to differentiate from Bush are mostly posturing more than anything else. They see him as trying to appease his most left-wing supporters while simultaneously carrying out plans that Bush himself had already put into motion. Guantanamo represents more of a token gesture than a major shift in policy.

But economically, I will never be able to get excited about the idea of having a quasi-socialist President and a Congress full of Democrats calling the shots. When we're in a recession, the last thing anyone should want is for more Democrats to be in charge.
