Obama: working for you the Congo

It seems that I raised some hackles over at Balloon Juice when I joined into their contest to define "elitist." I opined it was somebody who had no significant achievements in life but wrote two autobiographies. In retrospect, "no significant achievements" may have been harsh as FactCheck lists all of Obama's Senate legislation:

An accurate comparison with the Clinton bills listed in the e-mail would have included only the bills Obama has sponsored that have been signed into law. This comparison favors Clinton heavily, since 19 of her bills in seven years have become law, while Obama has had just two in his three years:
S. 2125, A bill to promote relief, security, and democracy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
S. 3757, A bill to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 950 Missouri Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois, as the "Katherine Dunham Post Office Building."
What are we waiting for? Give that man the keys to the White House!
