Obama on Iran

At some point in time, Obama's going to have to point out that McCain's position of never talking to adversaries is one of those Bush administration foreign policy innovations that has filled Holden's garage with ponies, and turned Bush into a person to be avoided by our erstwhile allies.

Especially if they stick with teh stupid, pretending that because Ahmedinejad says inflammatory things for domestic propaganda purposes, Iran is a looming, unreasoning threat.

He's lost Joe Klein. Now that's not Walter Cronkite, but this is nonetheless a sign of shifting narrative:

The fact is that McCain--or, at least, his top aides--seem to have adopted a simple attitude toward the press: Either you come to the barbecue or you're cast into the outer darkness.

BBQ? Heh.
