Let the disappointment begin!

Obama backs the FISA bill "compromise." As Kevin Drum points out, it's not just the immunity for the telecom companies that makes this a bad bill.

I suspect this is just the beginning of many progressives' disenchantment with Obama. It will only get worse once he's in office. Especially in domestic policy, Obama is far more centrist than progressive. In foreign policy I think we can look forward to some real changes, but in domestic policy I'm not expecting anything revolutionary. Which is too bad, because the country could sure use it.
