Obama's verdict --delivered in a few words to a very young American-- is that America has gone radically wrong.
And that it will require radical change.
Perhaps we had an unscripted moment of candor, a declaration from the most radical nominee of a major party in history that he is not about a gentle turning towards the left, or even a major shift in legislative priorities or security policy.
Let's take Obama at his word to a child: If he is elected, Obama sees his job as reshaping America in a fundamental way.
In a radical way.
