Take the damn ball, Senator Obama.
An open letter to Senator Barack Obama from a supporter.
Senator Obama, in your short time in the public eye you have shown great wisdom, judgment, and vision. Your greatest strength is the ability to fuse pragmatism with idealism. This often means eschewing traditional showboating and playing for the cameras in order to build consensus that builds towards progressive goals.
However, no single approach works for every problem, and building consensus is not working on the problem of Iraq. There was a time for Congress to be the steering wheel of our Iraq policy. Now, someone needs to slam on the brakes.
