"Pathbreaking president" - well, in terms of his racial background, yes. In terms of his fairly calm, stay out of the gutters tone - yes. In terms of policy - hell no! Not even close to pathbreaking.

Obama is a lightning rod because of who he is, not for what he's doing. But even if he actually stood up for major changes in this nation, it still requires long term, grassroots work by millions to actually get said change implemented. People seem to forget that really easily: elections don't = great change. I'm glad the author of this article gets that.
