Blueprint for Change

A lot of people say, “I don’t know what Barack Obama stands for; he’s all vague and lofty and aspirational. What are his actual policies?”
Well, he’s got this thing called a website, maybe you’ve seen one? Even better, here’s a 64-page pdf you can download and print out and read in the water closet that lays it all out in bullet points and details.
But for me, it hardly matters what the specifics are, because getting law through Congress is non-trivial – plans will change. I’d rather learn how someone thinks, how they approach problems, how they evaluate their options. From that point of view the website and the Blueprint are useful. But if you disagree with anything in it, don’t worry too much, it’s unlikely to end up as it begins.
