Incidental double entendre or intentional pun? Either way, well played.
For years, or even decades, I've had the sinking suspicion that we don't get to elect our leaders, rather we get to choose between two candidates who've already been vetted by the power behind the throne.
Obama only solidifies that suspicion and makes me think our intelligence agencies are the tail wagging the dog of government.
James, for information about the vetting of candidates, see Lawrence Lessig's short talk (18 minutes) about "Lesterland".
This is a country where a small group of people, proportionally equivalent to the number of people named "Lester" in America, get to pre-select who will run. Nobody unacceptable to the Lesters will be allowed to run a serious campaign.
Lessig's new group is called "Rootstrikers". A lot of young people are involved. It's out to get the dirty money out of politics.
