Now I'm not saying that I advocate Baraack Obama, the dude's becoming a politician. Not at all the fiery idealist that called for world peace and diplomacy as a solution that we heard in 2004 in the Democratic primaries. When I seen him on the telly at that time, I was amazed by his presentation of the truth....kinda like in the Indian way and reflecting truth and honesty which is quite high on my priority list.
But, Hillary Clinton is coming on like Bush-lite as an advocate for having a nuclear option on the table. Hillary also got on Obama for saying in a debate last week he would be willing to meet without preconditions the leaders of hostile nations Iran, Cuba, Syria, North Korea and Venezuela in his first year in office.
Clinton's position was that she would only meet those leaders after careful lower-level diplomacy bore fruit...Hello! Is this familiar rhetoric or what? This tells me that there will be a false flag, terrorist attack and she hopes to be shoed in through the Neoconservative methods of fear and co-erc'ion.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama found himself embroiled in a new foreign policy flap with rival Hillary Clinton on Thursday, this time over the use of nuclear weapons.
Obama ruled out the use of nuclear weapons to go after al Qaeda or Taliban targets in Afghanistan or Pakistan, prompting Clinton to say presidents never take the nuclear option off the table, and extending their feud over whether Obama has enough experience to be elected president in November 2008.
