Rob Malley, a Middle East policy adviser to likely Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama, resigned after news surfaced that he had been meeting with Hamas -- something Obama pledged he himself would never do.
Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said Saturday Malley called the Obama campaign on Friday to sever ties with the candidate after learning the Times of London was publishing a story about his contacts with the terrorist group.
Interesting enough on its own, but with Obama's public criticism of Carter's meeting with Hamas, it becomes another fine example of hypocrisy, political posturing, and a great source of mistrust. Even more interesting is the fact, Malley kept right on advising until he knew he was going to be fronted out.
Right now, some Dems are becoming increasingly worried that the only ones that will be voting for Obama in November will be elitists and blacks. Paul Begala understands this. But in the meantime, super-delegates are running toward Obama like kids to an ice cream truck.
Again, this the the man that wants to change the way things are done in Washington. Yet, it's easy to see that his campaign, his tactics, his thinking, his integrity, are all very Washington. This is the man that wants to unite the nation. Yet, his voting record is one the most liberal in the Senate.
With anti-Washingtonians like this, who needs Washington? With uniters like this, who needs dividers?
