Hillary, Obama Splitting Hairs

If the two leading contenders for the Democratic nomination really want to get into it, they should stop playing ping-pong about when and how to negotiate with our adversaries.

Clinton scored a rhetorical point in the debate by pushing a distinction without a difference, and now Obama keeps making it worse by crying “foul.” Enough, putative leaders of the free world! If you want to get away from the also-rans and have a serious, substantive debate about real issues, just dip into those piles of money you’ve attracted, pay for an hour of TV or cable network time and go at it.

But, please spare us the schoolyard spats. We have a war to stop and a country to provide with a grownup government again.
