The New York Sun

Obama Emerges. "Even if Mr. Obama runs on an anti-war platform, events have a way of changing presidents, and if he will pick up the internationalist principles, he could — on the evidence of his eloquence and Kennedyesque spirit — yet become a war leader."

Speaking as a liberal hawk who supported Joe Leiberman in 2004 & Joe Biden in 2008, I have high hopes for Obama. I think it is telling that Samantha Powers (a gen xer & liberal internventionist) is a key foreign policy adviser to the campaign. My hope for Obama is that he represents a generational change wherein liberals are no longer obsessed with Vietnam & the 1960s and can once again trumpet national greatness abroad and reform at home. Time will tell if he is that sort of liberal.
