Despite the promises made to MoveOn.org and Code Pink… Senator Barack Obama seems poised to play Jim Jeffords and switch parties.
1. Obama announced he’ll be supporting President George W. Bush’s position on retro-active telecom immunity.
2. Obama now supports presumptive presidential nominee Senator John McCain’s position on Iraq: Stability first, then withdrawal.
3. He would really, really like to have Colin Powell as Veep.
Well… that puts presumptive Democrat presidential nominee to the right of US Senator Gordon Smith, an Obamacan. Maybe he wants that Four More Years of Bush after all. Of course, believing the above would require that I believe Obama’s commitment to the new positions – and that is just a bridge too far.
