Subject: RE: BS: Should Obama Run in '12???
Obama's pro-war too when it comes to Afghanistan and launching various attacks inside Pakistan or Yemen, etc, but that's no surprise. All presidents seem to mysteriously become pro-war once elected, even if they weren't before they were elected. (possible exception: Jimmy Carter) That's because, in my opinion, they are the servants of the military-industrial establishment, not its boss. Kennedy tried to be its boss, and he didn't last too long, did he?

Yeah, Hillary would be a real hawk if elected president.

The only one I can imagine voting for with full commitment would be Dennis Kucinich, but there is no change at all that he will ever become president. I would also vote for Ron Paul (with some reservations) but I seriously doubt he will ever become president either. Both Kucinich and Paul wish to end the wars and bring the troops home.
