Krugman is not alone:

We do not need Obama to heal the rift between good and evil, or to bind up the nation's wounds with Bush's venom still in her bloodstream. Obama's balms of civility and bipartisanship may lull Americans into complacency, but they seem ill-equipped to end the outrages and injustices of the current administration's policies and restore America to moral solvency.  Obama has given us no indication that he will exercise the bold, far-reaching, and, yes, partisan leadership that will be necessary to undo the travesties of the past seven years.
