Dick Durbin, Barack Obama’s fellow Senator from Illinois, predicts that Obama will win the Iowa caucus and use the momentum as a “springboard” to the Presidency. A Newsweek poll puts Obama up 4 points over New York Senator Hilary Clinton in Iowa.
Durbin also aimed an extremely rare critisism at Obama because of their contradicting stances on deeming Iran’s military as a terrorist force. Durbin, along with Clinton, voted for the terrorist organization label.
After saying Obama was “naive” for stating he would meet with unconditionally with Iran, Clinton says she would take the same action.
“I would engage in negotiations with Iran, with no conditions, because we don’t really understand how Iran works,” she said.
John Edwards, being the bad ass he is, called her on it.
“Senator Clinton needs to be honest with the American people about her plans, but on everything from Iran to Iraq to Social Security it seems she’s trying to have it both ways,” he said in a statement.
