Moving on from race

Ben Smith, Politico

An Obama aide told me today that Obama felt he needed to give this speech but didn't want to dwell on race — and, sure enough, he's changing the subject:

CHICAGO — Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 19, 2008, five years after the Iraq war began, Sen. Barack Obama will deliver a major speech on the war in Iraq and our national security in Fayetteville, N.C. Sen. Obama will discuss how ending the war in Iraq is necessary for the United States to meet the national security challenges of the 21st century and to advance American interests throughout the world.

On Thursday, March 20, 2008, Sen. Barack Obama will deliver a major speech on Iraq and the economy in Charleston, W.Va., where he will address the costs of the war in Iraq on our economy.
