I'm not sure I think this is a good trait in Obama

I've never pretended to be an Obama fan and it seems the more I read the more convinced I am that my initial concerns were right. In reading a Washington Post article about, the magical two worlds of Obama, this statement struck me as one I don't find to be a good trait:
"He has a way of allowing you to feel as though you are a critical part of the operation," said Orlan Johnson, a Washington lawyer and law professor at Howard University who hosted a fundraiser at Union Station last week that raised more than $400,000.

That's what he did here in Ohio when he was the speaker last year for the Democratic Fundraiser, he made people including some bloggers feel as if they were important...yet he ignored anyone who had a question or a concern, only feeding into those who would jump on the Obama fever train.

Not everyone can be sucked in, people will demand answers as well as substance and his Hollywood connections will hurt him just as much as it would have hurt Clinton if she establishes a pattern of being in reality funded by the rich and the out of touch with America. Sure, you can give the impression that's is all those small donors, yet articles like this one point out? It's the same old song and dance of the rich calling the shots because they have a vested interest in protecting their pork and their way of life...Eventually there will be a President who is not from that world...

That's an interesting and valuable talent for any politician to possess.

However, a more experienced politician makes that illusion last, at least until he has milked all that he can get out of you.
