The problem with Obama's campaign promises is that people believed them. You should never
do that with a politician, no matter what the party. Even for the percentage of promises they actually meant
to keep (however small) they will never know how difficult they might be to keep until they are actually in office and know the "lay of the land" (cue Clinton joke.)
Myself, (and I'm sure a few list members are going to love
this) I wanted Hillary for president because I wanted Bill back in the office (even if just as "First Lady.")
