Well, remember that Republicans and Democrats switch roles every decade or two. Abraham Lincoln, for example was a Republican. He drafted and signed the Emancipation Proclamation, helping to abolish slavery. But today, Obama identifies most with Lincoln, of all presidents. Today, Lincoln would have been labeled a Democrat. Nevertheless, as Democrats have taken power, they have moved increasingly toward the center. This has pushed the Republicans out to a radical fringe. It won't be long before the roles switch again, and Democrats will be the party of the rich, with Republicans trying to derail their corrupt strangle hold on American business. As of today, however, the Democrats are still in their forceful backlash from Republican corruption. The good guys are in charge now, so we should see some good days ahead before things start to sour. If Hillary Clinton is elected president after Obama serves 8 years, I think we'll see things shift for the worse.
