"We are not shocked when a candidate moves to the center for the general election. But Mr. Obama’s shifts are striking because he was the candidate who proposed to change the face of politics, the man of passionate convictions who did not play old political games.
I've supported Obama from the beginning, and I'll continue to support him. But considering the not-so-subtle shifts in his rhetoric, mere weeks after winning a historically close primary, this backlash is much deserved. Cheers to the New York Times for calling him out:
"There are still vital differences between Mr. Obama and Senator John McCain on issues like the war in Iraq, taxes, health care and Supreme Court nominations. We don’t want any “redefining” on these big questions. This country needs change it can believe in."
