Obama sans Blinders

My friend Doug Bandow puts the president-elect under the right-leaning anti-war lens -- and finds Obama coming up short:

We can't say we weren't warned. The foreign policy pronouncements of candidate Obama were notable for their barely muted hawkishness. Thus, the fight against promiscuous military intervention by Washington must continue, only now against the incoming Democratic administration.

President-elect Barack Obama has declared that with his appointments he hopes to "combine experience and fresh thinking." On the national security side, at least, the experience is obvious. But the fresh thinking is entirely absent.

That, of course, explains why hawkish conservatives such as Max Boot are, so far, quite pleased with Obama's national security picks.

But will liberals notice? And when will they begin to care.
