Obama has had at least four positions in the last two months:
(1) let me be clear, Jerusalem must remain undivided;
(2) I just meant there should not be barbed wire between the divisions;
(3) the Clinton partition plan for dividing Jerusalem is a starting point for negotiations;
and (4) undivided, re-divided -- just "one of those final status decisions" to be made by Israel and the Palestinians, can't tell you my feeling.
The first position was "poorly phrased."
The second was word-splitting that would embarrass Bill Clinton.
The third was an affirmative endorsement of dividing Jerusalem.
The fourth was a punt after the first three didn't work.
And throughout, he has maintained that he hasn't changed his original position.
This is the candidate who says words matter.
This one's got legs, so forward to your lists, your favorite bloggers and editors, your reps in Congress, your favorite presidential candidate and last but not least, your leftie friends.
It couldn't be more important.
