Credit Where It Is Due For Obama

December 30, 2008

While no one knows what President Elect Obama’s Mideast policy will be, his consistent statements regarding the current Israeli offensive reveal a respect for the U.S. constitution.

Obama, who takes office on January 20, “is closely monitoring global events, including the situation in Gaza,” said his chief national security spokesperson Brooke Anderson.

Anderson however emphasized that “there is one president at a time,” a statement Obama has said often since he was elected on November 4. [LINK]

You may think that this is a calculated stance to take, and that might be true, but there is something comforting about an elected official calculating that respecting the constitution is good for their position.
