An ominous sign

The Obama campaign has become incoherent: http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2008/07/02/obama_fisa/index.html

This is a bad sign, because up to now Obama has at least sounded coherent. Even when he was weaseling on Iraq he was weaseling forthrightly, telling us that he would take us out of Iraq but that actually he would keep us in Iraq. That intention had to be dragged out of John Edwards, but not Obama, who was eager to tell us. But now the Obama campaign is just making up silly, incoherent lies on the fly.

If Obama’s word were money, it would rightly be plummeting in value. We used to have an Obama we could count on to stay in Iraq, but now we have someone we can’t count on for anything. I'd rather have the former than the latter, even though I oppose having the US stay in Iraq in any capacity.
