Now let me say this: "Premature" doesn't even begin to describe this.
His efforts at moving U.S. foreign policy back toward real diplomacy and away from the Bushies' policy of "Kill 'em all and let God sort out the bodies...after we've stolen all of their stuff" is laudable and something that I'm proud of as an American, even before today's announcement.
However, we are a little more than nine months into the Obama administration. It's *way* too soon to evaluate the success of those efforts.
Having said all that, it's been great fun to watch the right wing
That's not a very "peaceable" or "diplomatic" attitude on my part, but then I'm not up for any awards either. :))
