The rap on Obama

I'm drawn to Barack Obama. Ever since I read about him in the New Yorker I had the feeling that he is a star, and I think that his supporters have the same kind of excitement about him that people of my parents' generation had about Kennedy in 1960.
I haven't decided on him, although I would say that I'm leaning toward either Obama or Edwards.

And yet, he has shortcomings, not just for serving as President, but also as a candidate. This article in Slate explores the problem. The subtitle says it all:
What's he ever done?
