Campaign silly season
Here's a link to the Register's editorial today on the ridiculous campaign make-believe discussion over presidents talking to foreign leaders. The two sides make it sound as if the only two alternatives are military invasion or talking for the sake of talking, without any prep work. Obama would have been smarter last July to clarify his comment about talking to Ahmadinejad, but he acted like a politician and pretended he had never misspoken. Nonetheless, it's a non-issue. If he gets to the White House he'll do talks, if at all, after fairly extensive preparation; the bureaucracy will see to that.
