Ricky noted the situation with Barack Obama’s senior foreign policy advisor, Samantha Power (a Harvard prof and author of some good material), her decision to leave the Obama team, and comments about/from Hillary Clinton that seemed to lead to the divide.
I was sad to hear Power was leaving. She’s been profiled on Democracy Now recently for her latest book (on one of the most important men at the U.N. lost in the Iraq UN assault early in the war) and the lady strikes me as way smart.
But I couldn’t help but wonder exactly she felt she had to quit at the same time I found myself wondering (yet again) about both whether:
But I’ll say as I have before: we don’t need nasty. We need truth and honesty, something we KNOW we won’t get from McCain yet WANT to demand from Obama and Clinton.
And we sure as hell don’t need any Democratic operatives trying to channel the rat bastard AND American traitor as well as world war criminal, Karl Rove. Period.
