The Great De-Escalator
November 20, 2008
Change is already happening all over the globe, without Obama having to do anything but be himself. Already many lives will not be lost on both sides, because there is less reason for war. I agree with Klein, that Al Zawahiri’s letter calling Obama a ‘house slave’ is the biggest news of the week. See Klein’s post for an analysis I agree with on the subtext. Obama is bad for Al Queda, without lifting a finger. I also agree with Klein that the rest of the news this week (re Hillary appointment etc. is pretty unremarkable).
