Edwards’ and Obama’s Cynical Hope

The "politics of hope" didn't take four years to migrate from Edwards' mouth to Obama's — it took six months:

"Our campaign is not based on the politics of cynicism; it's based on the politics of hope"

— John Edwards in a stump speech, 1/28/04

"Do we participate in the politics of cynicism or do we participate in the politics of hope?"

— Barack Obama in his signature Democratic convention address, 7/27/04

I never though the politics of hope would make me so cynical….

Calls seeking comment from the Obama camp on this uncanny echo were not immediately returned.
