Putney Swope: Obama?

Putney Swope is a satire. When the movie was made it was far away from the reality but today we can compare it to Obama.
In the film the token black man on the executive board of an advertising firm is accidentally put in charge. Renaming the business "Truth and Soul, Inc.", he replaces the tight regime of monied white ad men with his militant brothers. Soon afterwards, however, the power that comes with its position takes its toll on Putney Swope.
Did you see it? What do you think about it? Did the movie remind you of Obama?

I'm not sure I understand, and I've seen Putney Swope. You're saying you think Obama wants to appoint an all-black cabinet and replace the Secret Service with the Black Panthers?

But that's just not true.

I think that's silly fear-mongering. The real issue is that he'd appoint an all liberal cabinet.
