Cynics for Obama

Here’s a bumper-sticker sentiment that appeals to me. Reminds me of one of Lowi’s Laws:

The Law of Succession: Each president contributes to the upgrading of his predecessors.

And its corollary:

This [i.e., making his predecessor look good] is the only certain contribution each president will make.

    What a wonderful quote.
    It reminds me that I can’t help wondering why people who choose a “lesser of two evils” are so often surprised when they find they elected an evil.
