Obama Meets with Adm. Mullen in 'Very Positive' Meeting

Just a few weeks ago, the GOP partisans were slamming Barack Obama as an anti-American, anti-military traitor, willing to sell out the U.S. at the drop of a hat.

This right-wing hyperbole was always nonsense, as this report from today's Washington Post makes clear:

Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, went unarmed into his first meeting with the new commander in chief -- no aides, no PowerPoint presentation, no briefing books. Summoned nine days ago to President-elect Barack Obama's Chicago transition office, Mullen showed up with just a pad, a pen and a desire to take the measure of his incoming boss.

There was little talk of exiting Iraq or beefing up the U.S. force in Afghanistan; the one-on-one, 45-minute conversation ranged from the personal to the philosophical. Mullen came away with what he wanted: a view of the next president as a non-ideological pragmatist who was willing to both listen and lead. After the meeting, the chairman "felt very good, very positive," according to Mullen spokesman Capt. John Kirby.

Facts are stubborn things, as someone once said. Obama, the facts show, is less partisan than his predecessor and more pragmatic.
