Wow, this is so cool!

Obama really amazes me sometimes. He actually respects diplomacy, and shows respect to the Iranian people! Could you imagine W doing something as classy as this?

There's an old Vulcan proverb, "Only Nixon could go to China." Maybe its time for a new one: "Only Obama could go to Iran."

The Israeli hawks aren't going to be happy about this. They want the U.S. to go to war with Iran.

My only quibble with his speech is that he said "relations between our nations have been strained for three decades." Actually, it's closer to six, since the CIA and British Petroleum overthrew Iran's democratic Mosaddeq government in 1953. But hey, who's counting, right?
