Post Political?

I think I'm finally burnt out, or bummed out, or both. My Woodstock generation values are out of sync with post 1970 American values. I watched a documentary a few days ago that tried to make the point that the crowds massed at the Obama inaugural were like the peace and music crowd at Woodstock. I don't think so. Well, maybe the crowds were hopeful..."change" and all that, but Obama has turned out to be just another garden variety politician. "Change you can believe in" has turned out to be triangulation and betrayal. Progressives are miffed. I don't think I care much anymore.
