Where Gaza and politics meet


Andrew Sullivan compiles replies to Glenn Greenwald’s query about whether any issue aside from Israel occasions a gap between a party’s leadership and its voters (I posted my reply below.)

Sullivan gets a lot of flack for changing his mind, but, I dunno, that sounds like something we could use a lot more of. Here he is, analyzing the genesis of the end of the Gaza cease-fire.

Speaking of the difficulties of changing one’s mind, Chris Kelly points out here that President Bush, battering Hamas for spending its reserves on guns, not butter, appears to have shifted his views on arms build-ups vs. infrastructure. Or maybe it’s situational.
