Obama says he is not a socialist -- New York Times

I followed a link back to a right wing forum where Obama's interview on Air Force One was being discussed. One of the commentors referred to my post "Is Obama a communist or a communitarian?" Nobody liked it...heh.. but I got a lot of hits from there.

And it IS interesting that Obama was asked by the Times to define his philosophy. The Times KNOWS what Obama's philosophy is ... so what was the point of asking? And considering the fact that Etzioni assured us Obama would be the one to tell Americans about communitarianism, Obama's response is kind of amazing too:
Q. Is there one word name for your philosophy? If you’re not a socialist, are you a liberal? Are you progressive? One word?

A. No, I’m not going to engage in that.
