Obama: Hoist by his own petard, Part II

It almost goes without saying but I'll say it. Obama's ability to use his "I was against the invasion of Iraq" line against McCain? Gone now that he's picked a Vice-President who was (on that and every other question of aggressive foreign policy) as hawkish as McCain. Not that he was using that line much anyway, having voted for the war at pretty much every opportunity since actually being in the Senate and having the chance to vote.

Update: Stephen Zunes documents Biden's long record of not just being a supporter of the war against Iraq, but a vociferous promoter of it.
