American politics is being subjected to a demagogue par excellence, namely Barack Obama. His rise to fame has largely been due to his inflammatory oratorical skills before massive crowds. Obama's work experience is quite slim. He was a community organizer in Chicago and then became a tool of the Cook County Democratic political machine. He became a state senator in Illinois and then U.S. senator, where he has served for only two years. It really is a stretch for someone with so little experience to aspire to be our next president. The old saying applies: buyer beware.
