One quick question (which we have sort of asked before):
Why hasn’t Barack Obama come out with a full throated defense of Hillary Clinton in her battle with the Pentagon?
Barack Obama mouths the words put “politics aside“. Obama is constantly lecturing Democrats to cross the aisle and work with Ripublicans who for years have repeatedly demonstrated their bad faith and untrustworthiness. Why won’t you work with Democrats Obama?
We also understand that (as TPM notes) “this could actually end up being the first anti-Iraq War legislation signed into law”. Senator John Kerry is joining Hillary in new legislation to force the Pentagon to face reality and consult Congress on plans to withdraw from Iraq.
For once in your short political life Senator Obama – Live up to your flowery words. Support Hillary in her battle with the Pentagon over Iraq. You won’t have to lead Senator Obama (D-Rezko) but for once do something don’t just talk about it.
[John Edwards and the other Democrats should join Hillary as well but they have not made garish displays of working with Ripublicans, like Obama has so frequently, so we will wait for Obama to support Hillary before calling on all Democratic candidates to support Hillary in her battle with the Pentagon over Iraq.]
