Obama on foreign policyIf Obama can stay in this mode, he can win in November.
He still makes a couple of references to bipartisanship. And as long as it stays mostly atmospherics, as it seems to be here, it won't get in his way too much. McCain and the rest of the Bush fans aren't interested in bipartisanship. And until they get slammed at the polls over and over like they did in Mississippi's 1st Congressional District this past week, they will continue with their "rule or ruin" approach.
Of course, I guess with the Republicans we get "ruin" even when they rule. So maybe that saying doesn't apply to them any more.
I should add that I think Obama's position on not talking with Hamas until they recognize Israel is unrealistic. It seems to me that such a recognition can only come as part of a larger settlement package.
