Which theory is correct? Obama is the greatest orator since FDR, and has so fogged the news media and our youth that they think they are in an evangelical revival meeting -- or no one has so crystallized our nations' problems with the eloquence of his vision.

Mass voter defections to the Democrats now include Arlen Specter. Or Specter has not been a good Republican since he spiked Judge Bork for the Supreme Court, as Bork was considered the greatest living judge at that time.

He has promised no lobbyist in Congress or he hired 17 in his first two weeks.

He says he doesn't want to run the auto industry, yet he fired the CEO of General Motors and threatened the lawyers of Chrysler if they didn't cave in to his demands.

He has gained the respect of our allies by his universalism or he has apologized for American history which has rescued Europe many times and rebuilt them with the Marshall Plan.

No president has touched so many aspects of our economy on such a wide front and the results are already showing, or history shows that FDR's massive government intervention did not cure the depression, only World War II did the trick.

Declaring a new "Truth Commission" or revealing our CIA secrets to the benefit of our enemies! Making solid overtures to the Muslim world by saying we are not a Christian nation, and dropping the term "Global War on Terror." Does the Muslim world love us less of more? Only history will reveal the results of the massive effort of this intelligent, articulate leader. One thing is sure, our economics -- banking, auto, Wall Street, will never be the same.
