He might fool the clueless MSM types:
CLINTON, Iowa –On the eastern side of Iowa, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) waved the anti-war flag before a crowd of Democratic supporters on Wednesday, drawing loud applause with his call for American troops to begin leaving Iraq “not in six months or one year. Now.”
Obama will not lead on Iraq, but worse than that, he will not even address it. A speech that refuses to deal with funding votes in the Senate and residual troops for the President post-2009 is not a statement on Iraq at all. It’s as if I were to ask him if I could borrow his extra umbrella because it’s raining outside, and he were to passionately talk about the need for it to stop raining. He’s just avoiding the subject. And why should I pick Obama if I want someone who avoids the subject? I can get a better version of that in the form of Hillary Clinton. At least she’s honest about not being an incrementalist, instead of bashing DC in speeches while doing nothing to change the culture he’s very much a part of.
