flip-flopping is in the eyes of the beholder

Obama is dealing with a handful of accusations about flip-flopping over the past few months.

Of course, any objective observer could say the same thing about McCain on drilling for oil, illegal immigration, and even Iraq.

I think Obama will tend to do more of this, because I don't think he has very many deeply held convictions. My impression is that he's more of a talker than a doer.

In any case, one could accuse Obama and McCain of flip-flopping. Or one could see it as the time-honored move toward the party faithful for that party's nomination-- and then a brisk walk toward the "center" of the political spectrum when that nomination is in-hand.

I don't mind each side pointing to flip-flopping or a jog to the center-- but let's look at both sides evenly, huh?
