Open Thread: Revisiting Obama's 'Socialist' Roots

In the latest series of the Hoover Institution's fantastic webshow "Uncommon Knowledge", Peter Robinson interviews author and National Review contributor Stanley Kurtz about his new book "Radical in Chief". The book explores Barack Obama's history as a leftist community organizer. Kurtz contends that Obama is, in fact, a socialist, though he admits that the term "socialist" has changed in meaning over the past few decades (hence the quotation marks in the headline).
