Robert Creamer (Huffington Post):
Howie P.S.: Robert Creamer is married to Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky from Illinois. Arianna Huffington calls his recent book, "Stand Up Straight: How Progressives Can Win," a master’s class in electoral politics. On telecom immunity, Obama is still opposed to it (and will vote against it if given the opportunity), but he has said he will vote for the final bill even if it doesn't eliminate that provision. That's not a flip, it's saying the goals of the overall bill are more important than that one element.
The Republican spin machine is locked and loaded to promote the notion that Barack Obama is a "flip flopper." Four years ago it was their principal line of attack against Kerry and it worked like a charm. But remember that the Republicans are desperate to convince independent voters that Obama is "just another politician" whose values flow from the latest poll instead of his own commitment to principle. Don't help them. If you do you will be wrong, and you will also help the Republicans fulfill their unthinkable fantasy of a third Bush term.
