The people who vilified Hillary or her vote for IWR – after having supported enthusiastically Kerry/Edwards who cast the same vote – are now split.

Some, like Eli pariser of Moveon feel invested in the coup and can’t let reality interfere with their illusion of power. Reports AP

“So far the trip has been out of the park. It’s an enormous moment,” declared Eli Pariser , executive director of MoveOn.org, which supports Obama. He hedged about Obama’s troop commitments, however: He said he wasn’t fully aware of Obama’s call for a residual force in Iraq and was trying to get a sense from MoveOn members on their views about Afghanistan .

Spoken like a true…political hack. But then, they’ve been thrown under the bus as unpatriotic by their beloved – and they don’t let go of their ticket to power, principles be damned.

At least there are still groups which remember why they were formed

Judith LeBlanc , organizing coordinator for United for Peace & Justice, said that “dealing with the threat of terrorism cannot be done on a military basis.” She and other activists wanted to hear more from Obama about a strategy for dealing with terrorism around the globe, including more use of diplomacy and economic aid.

Just a reminder, Moveon and friends: Hillary would have commenced withdrawal immediately – not in some qualified 16 months. And done away with Blackwater. Now you have to wait for 2010 (if the conditions on the ground agree)and the mercenaries will stay in forever. But hey, protesting is always fun, non?

And Obama looks to the Iraqi PN identical to Mccain

He said he was reassured by the candidate’s response, which caused him to think that Mr. Obama might not differ all that much from Mr. McCain. Mr. Zebari said that in addition to promising a visit, Mr. Obama said that “be a Democratic administration, it will not take any irresponsible, reckless, sudden decisions or action to endanger your gains, your achievements, your stability or security

And “fairy tales” are racist.
