We Illinois progressives sent Obama to the U.S. Senate, where he promptly joined the Joe Lieberman wing of the Democratic Party.
He’s not a progressive.
But he’s a master at pretending to be one."Obama is a company man.""Barack Obama Inc.: The birth of a Washington machine"Friend of Exelon
His economic advisers are very conservative, from the University of Chicago-Milton Friedman school of economics.
His voting record is pro-business.
His voting record is pro-war.
He glorifies American imperialism.
He flip-flopped on the Palestinians and Israel, and now is AIPAC-approved.
He has shown repeatedly what good friends he is with anti-gay African American preachers.
His chief political adviser is the Daley machine’s chief strategist.
I have heard but cannot confirm that the Obama campaign has also subtly encouraged donors to not fund groups like VoteVets and Progressive Media. These groups fall under the 'same old Washington politics' which he wants to avoid, a partisan gunslinging contest he explicitly advocates against." -- Matt Stoller

and let's not forget Donna Brazile who is lying when she says she hasn't taken sides. Her facial expressions and tone on CNN clearly show she's been for Obama for a long time. She has a standard snotty response she sends out to Hill supporters who try to contact her. Keep in mind these ppl who emailed her were very courteous thoughtful Hill supporters:

Thanks (name), As of today, I am not going to respond to any more anti American, Anti Democratic emails. Have a nice day.
I am sorry because you are sincere, but the Hillary forces are uncivil, repugnant and vile. When you come up for air and would like to email a person who cares about America and not just a personality, I will respond. (emphasis added by TM)
Thanks for your time and your interest.
