But that unusual story doesn't bind him much with the politican making families in the US. He just doesn't have those ties. So to sit here and say he came from the same group all the others have, is not accurate.

I can vouch for the bloodline not transfering anything other than raw dna. Obama is different than what was before and to be different is not the same as opposite. Now that his different is included in our collective sameness we are ready for some new different to come in. Instead of trying to persuade me to dislike someone how about introducing me to someone how is capable of moving things forward in a positive way on todays world stage.
Hence even some more aware people say: 'At least he's not Bush'.
Apart from the unspecified 'hope, 'change' and 'believe', few have any idea what Obama's policies will be. Public perception comes from having an 'image' of him, or a self-projection, not the fine print because Obama doesn't do fine print until the votes are cast and even then he will hide it in his windbag words.
There is an 'image' that Obama is against war, but no he's not. He says he's against the invasion of Iraq, though we'll see what he does about that in office. How can a man calling for more troops, including European troops, to be sent to Afghanistan be against war? He has also said he is prepared to bomb Pakistan and use military force to stop Iran building nuclear weapons and he has appointed Hillary 'Let's bomb 'em' Clinton (Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations) as Secretary of State and re-appointed Bush's 'Let's bomb 'em' Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates (Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations). So that's the 'change we can believe in', then.
