Wait a second--Obama's naive....?

Blitzer: Awkward Iraq news for McCain campaign
WASHINGTON (CNN) – One of the most awkward developments for Bush administration and McCain campaign officials to defend is the appearance of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in Iran, embracing and kissing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Iranians are widely accused by U.S. military and civilian officials of helping to kill American troops in Iraq. The Iranian leader is widely accused of supporting a covert nuclear weapons program. He has been quoted calling for Israel to be removed from the map. So why is the top U.S. ally in Iraq kissing him?

The Administration’s defense is that the Iraqis need to work out a good, long-term relationship with their Iranian neighbors. High-level discussions between the Iraqi and Iranian leadership, they say, will help – not hurt – the overall security situation in Iraq.

So the Republicans think that it's a brilliant idea for the Iraqi PM to "sit down with a rogue leader," hug and kiss him, but Obama's a "naive" fool for saying he'd sit down and talk with the guy? Seriously?

If McCain actually uses this attack on Obama, which it seems like he is, it's really going to fall limp. Even Conservative pundits are saying this isn't the way to attack, too many examples of Republican and sucessful examples of these types talks exist in history...

Every US President since Roosevelt started the relationship has done that.
