It was surely the administration that direspected and sidelined him, he and Darth Cheney were not chummy to say the least... but I also think its more personal to the guy on some level, he just has no desire to tackle this mess.

Its hard to blame him based on the backstabbing he received from the right, but I also think he would be our best bet for both rationality and toughness in this modern world.

In hindsight, his gushing over Obama is forgiveable, he's a black man taken in by many of the same things white and every other colored American was fooled by... not to mention a deeply personal stake, he was genuinely choked up when Obama first got in... but that aside, this man would be perfect for the highest office IMO.

Instead, we'll get Hillary and Candidate X... more of the same old blah blah staus quo I'm afraid, there isnt a transformational candidate anywhere in sight.

More partisan gridlock, more divisivness... hooray!
