Is Obama Clinton 2.0?

August 22, 2008


 

KEVIN GRAY
Gray is author of Waiting for Lightning to Strike: The Fundamentals of Black Politics and the forthcoming The Decline of Black Politics: From Malcolm X to Barack Obama.

Gray said today: "Obama is slipping in the polls and I think it's because he's seen as going with the flow. He's not taking on the crucial issues -- instead he frequently sounds like he's reading the lines from [the book] 'Primary Colors.' ... Many people seem to think that just getting Obama into the White House would be a great victory because of the symbolism, but do we really know that policies that affect people's lives will really change? That will only happen if movements propel that change."
