As I watch this clip of Dodd and Obama, I find, to my horror, that I think Chris Dodd is making sense in this particular case.  After all, what does it say for Obama’s credibility that the people who “helped to authorise and engineer the biggest foreign policy disaster in our generation” (as he put it) seem to possess more common sense and wisdom than Obama when it comes to Pakistan?  If even these people understand why he was wrong, when they understand very little else, why should anyone else embrace Obama’s proposal?
