At some level, [Barack] Obama seems to say that the problem [causing people anger] is merely the politicians. Their failures have gotten in the way of solving the problems of the American people. He'll nod to the problem of corporate lobbyists but he usually won't straight out identify the actors OUTSIDE GOVERNMENT, namely corporate power, as a significant target for change.The problem with many Republicans is they operate according to the business=good / government=bad dichotomy, while I see both as equally prone to bad even as we expect that they be good. Money is simply the business counterpart to government power.
Ultimately, [John] Edwards is more willing to try to build a message of where the source of problems are. Politicians may not be acting to solve them, but Obama needs to talk more about that source of the problem, not just his vaguer blame of politicians failure to act, to convince me he can turn his organizational prowess into deeper ideological realignment of the populace.
How I vote in February will have less to do with who has won the other primaries to that point and more to do with whether I can resolve the question of whether Obama sees the ills of corporations as readily as he sees the ills of government.
