Will Obama do better than Bill Clinton? (conspiracy theories aside)

I'm an Obama supporter, I've supported him from day one, and, I have supported him because he is indeed somewhat of a socialist and he is far more leftist than anyone who's been President in recent memory. That being said, since Obama will probably govern from center-left, rather than from the center, and cater to the Republicans like Bill Clinton did, do you think Obama will do a better job at enacting more liberal and socialist policies? Conspiracy theories aside please...

Well, then, by your definition, since you supported him because you're a socialist, he will do a better job than Clinton. One of the things to consider, though, is that Obama has a lot of Clinton aides and appointees in his Administration, and of course, a Clinton as Sec. of State, so I would assume his administration will be governed much as Clinton's was. After all, his aides, cabinet members, and confidants make many of the decisions in an Administration, or at least have a lot of input.

Define better (what you would like to see done)

I am not an Obama supporter due to many issues he has voted for or promoted in his campaign so I cannot answer a question without further information. Likewise, there are a fewer number of issues that I do agree with that are traditional democrat issues so I would be interested if we agree on any of these common interest.

I want for him to focus on domestic issues. He's already came up with a new-new deal. I want that to work.

What I want him to do better is that I don't want him putting our economy strong again and then making it a bubble economy. I don't want for Obama to be blamed for the next recession (or depression) and I don't want that to happen after Obama leaves office. If Obama can rework our economy with his form of economics, and, unlike Clinton, can make it stay better, than, Obama will be better in my mind. I also am hoping that Obama doesn't support any silly wars or do anything that the conservatives can jump on him for later. That's what I mean by him being better than Bill Clinton.

My main concerns are UN treaties, surrendering of soverignty to foreign interests, Uncontrolled unfunded social programs and Constitutional rights.

On the economic note, I WISH we would perform a great domestic economic feat by becoming completely energy independent.

How.... Algae Oil. Look it up on youtube and the web. 10 - 20 thousand gallons per acre.

We could build overland pipelines from the Ocean to the deserts in Southwest and have this operational in less than 10 years. (100% domestic use only!) until a time when we export only the extra production.

Other things I would like to see is the nullification of patent law when it comes to "NATIONAL SECURITY" issues such as energy and medicine. We can no longer afford to have technology bought up and hidden / priced out of the market in the name of "intellectual property".

A quick 3rd would be setting a "bounty" on diseases... sounds silly but let's get real.. there is no money in cures... only treatments. The research scientists and research centers get millions a year in grants to keep researching. We do not get cures for anything ... only expensive treatments. Throw a 100 billion dollar bounty for a cure to cancer and it will be cured by the end of his first term... someone will flinch, that is to much money to risk the other guy getting. Human nature is greed, if there is to much money in the status quo, why change... especially if it puts you out of a job

I have many more but it is getting late and I have to work in the AM.

May stop by tomorrow.... Have a good night.
