Obama’s Astonishing Moment
Sen. Barack Obama, the candidate who once neglected to mention that he would counterattack if al Qaeda destroyed two U.S. cities, tonight pledged to meet, one-on-one, in his first year as president, with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Bashir Assad, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, and Kim Jong Il.
Sen. Hillary Clinton refused to make such a pledge. “I will not promise to meet with the leaders of these countries during my first year,” she said. “I don’t want to be used for propaganda purposes.”
