Although I believe Barack Obama is by far the best of the available candidates, he has sold himself shockingly short of his principles in regards to the Palestinians. It is true that no mainstream candidate can ever speak out against the brutal Israeli occupation, but Obama is selling himself as the candidate of 'change', not willing to 'say or do anything to get elected'. In this interesting article by Znet journalist Ali Abunimah, Obama's shifting positions on the subject provides cause for serious concern.
