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's not a very aggressive leader.

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.

As I said, he's kind of a draw, making good stances and bad ones equally often. Which is better than I had expected, but not what I was hoping for.
I find him fascinating. He the first blatant concensualist we've had in my lifetime. I wish he had fewer Teabaggers and corporate-lacky SCotUS Justices to deal with. Without them he might just have been able to reform government, decommissioning the "Imperial Presidency", and undoing that whole "money is speech" crap.

One flaw, money has always been speech, throughout all of life's history, it cannot be avoided. The problem is not that those who have the most get the loudest voices, it's that mob mentality is running this country instead. Rather ironic, people think that the money is in control here, but it's not, it's a popularity contest. In order for there to be any positive change in the US, the positive notion must first become popular, when a negative notion becomes popular then that one is put in place instead. When the two are equal we have a civil war. Politicians are crooked, no doubt there, but the corporations that give them money are not the biggest or wealthiest ones, they are the popular ones, and often the most corrupt, thus why they need to manipulate the popular opinion to stay in business.

Money isn't "speech", it's just a megaphone.

I was surprised the SCotUS didn't declare that, and had to reevaluate the bench accordingly.
