Justin Elliot does a nice run-down of the candidate’s efforts to render himself kosher. At the end of the day, I think the more bigthink-oriented Israel hawk activists are never going to like Obama because his ideas about Iraq and Iran don’t jibe with their broader regional vision. But he’s shown know indication of being the sort of person who’s interested in risking his political career over the Palestinian issue one way or another.
