Doubletake of the Day

I just listened to Al Gore praising Barack Obama for having had the courage to oppose a "popular war." Was he on another planet when tens of millions of people marched through the streets of every major city in the world, opposing the invasion of Iraq? "Popular" war? Popular in the halls of Washington, maybe. Not out here in the real world.

Second doubletake: From Barack Obama tonight:

"We are the party of Roosevelt. We are the party of Kennedy. So don't tell me that Democrats won't defend this country."
So...what is he saying? That the war in Vietnam, which killed more than a million Vietnamese and 58,000 Americans, was "defending this country"? Or perhaps sponsoring the Bay of Pigs invasion was "defending this country"?
