Response to Yes .. I am afraid Obama is going to disappoint
He wasn't in the Senate then. But he was vocal against the war in Iraq... not the war on terrorism or in Afghanistan. The war in Iraq has pretty much been finished now, it only remains for the pentagon to decide how to get them out safely. He restated today his commitment to get them out... it has always been stated that he wants to be as careful getting them out as bush was careless getting them in. I've never heard Obama say what he'd do about Iran, but diplomacy has already started there at the urging of rice and Gates.
Most of what people say he promised were not promised... he always said, "we hope to, we'll try to, if possible, depending on the circumstances at the time, on the ground, etc" No reason to be disappointed if ones expectations were reasonable.
