Who is Up? Who is Down? On Obama's Team of Rivals - The Washington Note

Who is Up? Who is Down? On Obama's Team of Rivals - The Washington Note:

Dan Kervick wrote in a comment on January 8, 2010:
"One thing that has surprised me is the overall communications operation, which has been surprisingly inept when it comes to projecting any kind of vision of change, passion and initiative with the power to excite people. The administration has made a religion out of setting low expectations, and there is now a total lack of energy and inspiration on the progressive side. In the Obama administration hands, even things like saving the world from climate change and overhauling the health care system have become exercises in tedious and wonky boredom.

Obama seems content to be a sober and solid pro, with little interest in changing the world in any profound way. He seems like a strong and unflappable swimmer, whose approach is to tread water indefinitely in middle of the ocean, not heading for any really appealing or exotic shores, while various opponents and critics flail madly and eventually drown themselves." [emphasis added by Vision of Change]
