Sometimes, reality is a pill too bitter to swallow. The media hoopla surrounding Barack Obama has managed to completely obscure his actual policies, with liberals falling all over themselves about his campaign mantra 'Change'. The fact is, Obama is a left of center candidate, with similar views to his rivals John Edwards and Hillary Clinton.

There may be some truth to the argument that Obama is the only candidate capable of working across party lines, and he is the only mainstream candidate that did not support the Iraq war. However, Mike Gravel argues that Obama is the most dangerous of the three major candidates, not because he is the most right wing, but that he actually believes in his own rhetoric.

For those of you supporting Obama (and I am tentatively one of them), this is not an easy video to watch.
