WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said on Sunday he used "poor phrasing" in a speech supporting Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel.
"You know, the truth is that this was an example where we had some poor phrasing in the speech. And we immediately tried to correct the interpretation that was given," he said in an interview aired on Sunday on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria -- GPS."
Obama's campaign has issued similar clarifications since the candidate's speech to pro-Israel lobby group after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination early last month.
"Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided," Obama declared Wednesday...
But a campaign adviser clarified Thursday that Obama believes "Jerusalem is a final status issue, which means it has to be negotiated between the two parties" as part of "an agreement that they both can live with."
I thing you hit the nail on the head Karl. Change is just a word that really means just more of the same with a different spin on it..

If only we had a candidate that was actually worth electing. The pandering for votes is always my favorite part of the political process. Just promise everyone everything and hopefully they all vote for you.
