Dorn and Obama: the mystic bond

Reading this KOMO article about Randy Dorn's rocky start, I was struck by some compelling similarities between Dorn and President Obama. Think about it: both...
  • Surprisingly defeated a heavily-favored female opponent by calling for change
  • Had to deal with a system in crisis at the outset of their term
  • Stumbled out of the gate, partly because of their own missteps, and partly because of unexpected opposition from entrenched legislators
  • Are not yet the sum of their expectations
I have, as they say, a theory: Dorn and Obama are stigmatic twins.
