THE SPINE MARCH 3, 2007
Barack Obama delivered a speech Friday afternoon to an AIPAC meeting in Chicago. I believe he must have satisfied (nearly) all of those who had been skeptical of his grasp of the Israeli conundrum. Very much satisfied them. Me, included. (His was an extremely sophisticated analysis.) And he must also have disillusioned all of those who'd hoped--like the lefty blogosphere--that he'd be oh-so-sympathetic to the self-inflicted Palestinians. Read about this speech in The Chicago Tribune, Haaretz
and the AP. Here's a transcript of the address.
