As the presidential election of 2008 approached, Soros while putting his support behind Hillary Clinton, was looking for someone who economic and political philosopihies were more aligned with his own. According to Soros, the open society in the United States would require a more progressive regime change that what Hillary could provide. Soros found that person in Barack Obama, a socialist/progressive who shared all of Soros values and agendas. Soros first met Obama during a fundraiser for his 2004 Senate campaign, and commanded Obama...
