Shifting his stance on Iran
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama came under fire from GOP opponent John McCain for expressing his willingness to talk to Iran's leaders if he becomes president of the United States.
Now, in perhaps an attempt to mitigate that criticism, Obama is now saying that he supports designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.
This is in advance of his scheduled speech before a pro-Israeli group.
Obama has a perception problem among Jews that he is struggling to repair.
Still, as he does so, he should be careful to not toss is core principles into the garbage.
One (especially he who would be commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces) must be careful about declaring a standing army a terrorist organization. Because it opens the door for one's own army being declared one as well.
