In terms of the Republican-Democratic complement, it almost sounds as though Obama's role is to keep the productive proletariat happy and compliant within the current set of social forces, while Romney's role is to energize both ends of the non-productive lumpenproletariat (finance aristocracy above and the those angry about being left behind, below) in order to validate an acceleration of those same forces and further upward redistribution. But that's probably too simple ;)
