Less for More

Part of the anti-Obama as POTUS plans seem to be to paint him as arrogant or a elitst.

<blockquote><p> "He continues to have a style that is kind of distant, almost professorial and some of the people will regard that as elitist or arrogant," said Stu Rothenberg, editor and publisher of The Rothenberg Political Report.</p><p> Critics may be using catchwords such as "arrogance" to set Obama apart, according to New York Times political correspondent Jeff Zeleny.</p><p> "Arrogance in this campaign will be perhaps more loaded than it would be in other campaigns," he said. "They're trying to say … 'He's not one of you.' "</p><p> Obama faced a similar battle when critics – including then-rival Sen. Hillary Clinton – tried to paint him as an elitist. Those accusations surfaced after Obama characterized some small-town Pennsylvanians as "bitter" people who "cling to guns and religion" in the days leading up to that state's primary.</p></blockquote> My question to people that understand the US more than I do is, don't you want someone exceptional to be your President, or is the goal to have someone average and mediocre to be in charge instead?  I for one would love to see more exceptional people who are greater than the rest of us running things in Japan.
