Yet another example of how the media was slack when it came to Obama and so hard on Hillary.
The media didn't "let him get by" with this stance. They recognized the Senator had taken a well documented strong stance that is and was publicly verifiable. This wasn't someone who merely made a quick public statement in passing, the Senator went beyond that and became active in his public denunciation as well as officially "on the record" in the capacity he was able. Had he been in the Senate, things may have been different, but if, if was a fifth, we'd all be drunk right now.

Well, we will never truly know now will we just like we don't know if Marilyn Monroe committed suicide or was killed, who really shot JFK, etc., etc.

If your going to post on CD.. Please attempt to have some facts to back anything up... Without them, your just another left wing kook who needs psychological help for dilusions.
You didn't know that Cheney has been instrumental in Bush's decision making over the last 8 years?! Whoa! Where are we... circa 2001 [enter twilight zone]. Get me outta this place! Go back to watching your Jerry Falwell memorabilia tapes Mr. 'Dilusion'; I'm not going to overstate the obvious any more to appease you and your ilk.

No, that would be a non sequitur.

I guess you would if I were speaking in the literal sense. Honestly though, I respect you more than the prodigal McCain follower here, which seem to me are more fixated on smearing Obama more than talking about what they like about their candidate (or defending him even). There's no question in my mind this board is largely duped conservatives. I don't believe everything Obama says and have previously been a outspoken fan of the Libertarian Ron Paul. I also like Dodd, Kucinich, and Gravel (in that order) more than I like Obama. But when choosing between a turn sandwich and a douche, I embrace the douche withe open arms...
