Bill Richardson says don’t talk to Ahmadinejad but to”moderate clerics” and confesses he chatted with Castro (when? with what authority?). Apparently he is just as adept as a surrogate as he was a candidate.
Sidney Blumenthal says John McCain isn’t George W. Bush and don’t try to make him out to be. Whoops! Isn’t this the central argument for Barack Obama? But wait: if the game plan is not 2008 but The New Hillary for 2012, maybe he is on message.
