Now that the primary is over, Obama will move to the center, maybe even to the right. All politicians do this. They go for the hardcore supporters during the primary which means appealing to those more on the edges. Then, during the general election, they move back to the center.
Obama is a centrist liberal, not a progressive. Deal with it. Having said that, IMO, he’s still by far the best of all those who ran in the primaries.

Really? Better than Kucinich? Gravel? Edwards? Not by a long shot.
By the way, the extent to which he is “moving to the center” (as if he were left of center!) or even to the “right” is being exaggerated. The real problem is that people were always exaggerating or imagining or wishing how far he was to the left. He never was! His waffling on pulling out of Iraq, his alleged backtrack on NAFTA, and other issues, his talk with Time Magazine about how he admires the George H.W. Bush administration and is considering some of the members of that administration for his own, are all entirely consistent with everything he’s had to say before. It’s just that some people had their fingers in their ears going “la la la la” so they wouldn’t hear it.
