Memo to Tom Hayden: Obama Said He'd Escalate in Afghanistan During the Election

I wish Obama had changed his mind on Afghanistan, and argued for him to do it. I will continue to do so. But I never had any illusions.

I can excuse some college kid for this but it is completely absurd coming from a man of Tom Hayden's age and experience:

Tom Hayden, the liberal activist best known for his work in the 60's, when he helped found Students for a Democratic Society, was once pretty enthusiastic about Barack Obama. Back in March of 2008 he had the first byline on an article in the Nation -- also attributed to Bill Fletcher Jr., Danny Glover and Barbara Ehrenreich -- that began, "All American progressives should unite for Barack Obama."
