Obama Changes His 'Unconditional' Position-

"He was specifically and directly asked if he would meet with the leader of Iran (and the leaders of several other “so-called rogue states”) without preconditions, in the first year of his presidency, and his answer was, “I would.”"

Once you get through the rhetoric, Obama is still a politician.
He has and will continue to change his stance on any issue that he can, that might help him in the campaign.

Which is why the Reverend Wright fiasco was so important.
It gave us a glimpse into his thought processes. He associates with extremely dangerous people then quickly back tracks and says I didn't know. He back tracked on Campaign finance as well. He vowed to run his Presidential campaign with public money, as McCain agreed to do.
That was a campaign trick to make everyone think he was a new breed, unbeholden to special interests, since he is only taking public money, but now, he has backed out of that deal. He likes the fact that he is getting swamped with money and now he will be nothing more or different than the Washington Insiders that he decries at every campaign stop.

John McCain has been keeping his promises so far on running an above board campaign. He rebuked the 527 that made light of Wright in N.C.. I just wonder how long that is going to last.

I don't like McCain, but the other day, I saw one of his speeches and was impressed. He seemed to have found a common and honest chord from which to speak to conservatives and moderates.

Is that how a person of character does it: look around until you find enough sound bites to suit everyone?

It has worked for Obama. Why shouldn't it work McCain?

Oh, it is working for McCain. They all do it and still the most popular and biggest money grubber usually wins anyway.

I plan to vote for McCain in November. I am an Independent and he seems to be the least worst of the bunch to me.

Bush got elected knowing nothing about other countries and has spent his time on that only. McCain is expected to spend all of his time on foreign affairs (not female) but he won't. He will work on Health care, veterans, budgets, and which republican will win the next election. Nearing 80 by then, he may not run again, me thinks.

Watch his VP pick and you will know that.
He won't be able to pick who he wants due to needing votes so it will be someone similar to Clinton and Obama.
