Obama Jettisons Core Causes

Recall Candidate Obama promising to reverse Bush-Cheney secrecy.  Glenn Greenwald did at The Guardian.

"The American people want to trust in our government again – we just need a government that will trust in us. And making government accountable to the people isn't just a cause of this campaign – it's been a cause of my life for two decades."
Obama jettisoned his core cause of transparency and accountability, just as George W. Bush trashed his promise of bipartisanship.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
