Why would Obama fail on so many campaign promises? He's not a president of peace--we have more troops in Afghanistan and they are not soon going to leave Iraq. His administration is not firm on stopping Israel from attacking Iran. He's got the same old bailout policies that Bush had (with a few different footnotes). His Attorney General is not likely to investigate high level Bush administration folks for intentional violations of international law. What's pushing him off his campaign track? In this article, the author concludes that the forces against him are motivated by the next presidential election. In short, all politics is domestic politics which is why Obama is following the Bush team script on central issues.
