The New John Kerry

Obama seems to be making up for his incredible lack of experience by following the John Kerry school of politics- tell whatever audience you're talking to what they want to hear.

Obama, during a speech Wednesday to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-israel lobbying group, had called for Jerusalem to become the site of the U.S. embassy, a frequent pledge for U.S. presidential candidates.

But of course the so-called Palestinians objected to this and so Obama, man of principle that he is, quickly changed his mind.

Obama quickly backtracked today in an interview with CNN.

"Well, obviously, it's going to be up to the parties to negotiate a range of these issues. And Jerusalem will be part of those negotiations," Obama said when asked whether Palestinians had no future claim to the city.

In short, he either doesn't know what he's talking about or he's simply pandering to whichever potential voting block he happens to be addressing at the time. Hope! Change!
