The third reason Obama should run for president is his worldview. At least in the way he conceptualizes the world, he is not an orthodox liberal. In the book, he harks back to a Hamiltonian tradition that calls not for big government, but for limited yet energetic government to enhance social mobility. The contemporary guru he cites most is Warren Buffett. ~David Brooks, The New York Times
Hamiltonianism and admiration for Warren Buffett? I know it can be worse than this, but I am having trouble imagining what it might be in our present circumstances.
