    Obama shifts, says he may back offshore drilling

    By MIKE GLOVER, Associated Press Writer 8 minutes ago

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Friday he would be willing to support limited additional offshore oil drilling if that's what it takes to enact a comprehensive policy to foster fuel-efficient autos and develop alternate energy sources.

    Shifting from his previous opposition to expanded offshore drilling, the Illinois senator told a Florida newspaper he could get behind a compromise with Republicans and oil companies to prevent gridlock over energy.

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    Another flip, or a flop, depending how you look at it...

    Isn't that a good thing, though? Our president should modify his/her opinions to support America's needs. He may not necessarily be trying to win electoral favor as much as trying to adapt to new issues.

    The wackoo env. must be having a diarrhea attack with that statement. I think Nader and the greenies just gained a few hundred thousand votes.

    This lying POS will say or do anything to get elected. Bush needs to call these Congress critters back into session.
