From the LNC Quote Shop -Change means change to left

mad housewife-
Is all change good? No. Only good change is good. Change per se is neither good nor bad: but it is essential, and being positive about change is healthier and ultimately less dangerous than trying to prevent it from happening. But I think Obama’s “change” is code for “moving towards the left”, really, which isn’t really new or exciting. Left-ness is not a new or exciting idea. If he comes up with something more impressive than that, it’ll be great, but I haven’t heard mention of it yet. If anyone has any ideas, I’d be glad to hear them.

Also, if Obama is using “change” to mean “go left”, he has fooled a lot of people who thought he had a whole different kind of politics in mind than just left.
