My tweaking of the Bush Doctrine from Wikipedia.
The Obama Doctrine
It is an enduring Democratic principle that this duty obligates the left to invent, anticipate and counter racial threats, using all elements of power, before the threats can do grave damage. The greater the threat, the greater is the risk of inaction – and the more compelling the case for taking anticipatory action to defend ourselves, even if uncertainty remains as to the time and place of the enemy’s attack. There are few greater threats than a racial attack. To forestall or prevent such hostile acts by our adversaries, the Democrats will, if necessary, act preemptively in exercising our inherent right of self-defense.

This is from Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius. Kansas values?

More cheers of unity from the media. CNN’s Cafferty:
The differences between Barack Obama and John McCain couldn’t be more well-defined. Obama wants to change Washington. McCain is a part of Washington and a part of the Bush legacy. Yet the polls remain close. Doesn’t make sense…unless it’s race.
