He's not a very aggressive leader.<quoted text>
My take is that he's a new kind of Democrat, who focuses upon those who care enough to organize and work (and donate) for what they want.
I don't feel so well about his activities for those who tend to be voiceless.
He has a habit of (eventually) taking a stand on the right side of moral issues, but does very little to bring about change.
In my opinion, when it comes to gay an lesbian equality, he gets a lot of credit for just being in the right place at the right time when he really didn't do anything to make tings happen.
Still, he is the first president to take a public stand in favor of full equality and that counts for something.
