Obama calls for Peace In Our Time

Russia invaded Georgia yesterday, and Obama called for "All sides should enter into direct talks on behalf of stability in Georgia, and the United States, the United Nations Security Council, and the international community should fully support a peaceful resolution to this crisis.”

I love this. Columns of tanks are rolling into Georgia, and Obama's saying, essentially, "Can't we all get along?" It's like he's channeling Carter/Dukakis/Chamberlain all at once.

McCain, on the other hand, said Russia should should "immediately and unconditionally cease its military operations and withdraw all forces from sovereign Georgian territory.”

McCain could make some points here by telling the Russians to get out of Georgia or we'll cut off all trade with them on Labor Day, while Obama politely asks the French to draft a strongly worded resolution.
