Slate Update: Responses So Far

  There have been lots ofinteresting responses to my article on Obama -- not all of them complimentary, you won't be surprised to hear:

2006_11_scantron Over at TAPPED, the American Prospect blog, Dana Goldstein notes that whatever he did or didn't do long ago, Obama is already standing up to teachers unions on charters during this campaign (Obama On Local Control).

Political Animal's Kevin Drum notes:  "This is only a tidbit, not an indictment....But it's still an interesting tidbit." (Leadership, plus 49 comments so far).

Over at Slate's reader response section, called The Fray, there are 27 responses, most of them eviscerating my argument or dismissing the piece for being unlikely to make a difference in the political race (here).   Plus some making fun of everyone else's Obama-mania. 

Linking the Chicago incident to a more recent on on immigration, EdWeek's Michele McNeil says that "This might be a pattern with Obama" in her post, Is Obama a Wimp on Education?

Last but not least, there are about a dozen responses from education folks in Chicago, many of them focused on whether Obama has ever "stood up" to the black community, whatever that means:  here.
