Kevin Drum catches John Edwards being slippery:
I’d very much like to go along with the conventional wisdom that he “backed off” his hawkish Iran comments when he talked to the Prospect yesterday.
But, really, does anyone believe that? I don’t. Instead, he was engaging in Politics 101: telling different audiences what they each want to hear. When he’s talking to an Israeli conference, he emphasizes the supreme danger Iran presents and implies strongly that military action is a real possibility, while barely even mentioning the idea of engagement and economic aid. When he’s talking to a liberal American magazine, he emphasizes engagement and economic aid and downplays the possibility of military action as vanishingly unlikely during an Edwards presidency.
