Waiting for Obama


We (Ami, Uri Heilman, Ron Kampeas, a few dozen journalists and thousands of pro-Israel activists) are waiting for Obama’s big AIPAC speech. It’s hard to imagine a more dramatic stage and opportune time for Obama to reach the hawkish-minded Jews who are politically active, more than willing to vote for the right Democrat and aren’t sure the Illinois senator is the right Democrat.

There’s been a bunch of rumors the past 24 hours about what he and Hillary Clinton (she’s up after him) will say.

She’ll concede.

He’ll announce that she’s the Veep.

She’ll demand to be the Veep.

She’ll endorse him.

My favorite: Obama will let it be known that he’s in the market for a new shul.
