The Distraction of a Rhetorical Flourish
Given that both the Obama camp and the McCain team have been receiving national security briefings in preparation for an Administration handover, do you suppose that Biden Six-Term indirectly leaked something he may have been made privy to?
The anti-war base of the Democratic Party may be in for a rude reality check, as they discover that the world is a dangerous place, that the Bush Administration has been doing its job all this time in protecting Joe Six-Pack and Joe the Plumber; and that confronting America's enemies may not be a partisan issue after all (they already admitted they lied to their base in 2006 to gain political power and House and Senate seats).
For all the huffing and puffing about how Senator McCain is "Senator More of the McSame", Senator Obama sure doesn't have any problem taking credit for the success of the Bush/McCain surge strategy paving the way for possible withdrawal dates; nor for adopting much of President Bush's tax cuts.
Say one thing to constituents, do another once elected. Probably further to the left; but who knows?
