    Anti-Iran Rally Turns Into Anti-Obama Rally

    NEW YORK (CBS) ― Politics and diplomacy were not a good mix at Monday's protest rally against Iran at the United Nations.

    Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin didn't participate in the "Stop Iran Now" rally and there were a lot of hard feelings about it.

    It was a simple sign that read "We Want Sarah. Shame On The Rally Organizer."

    Howard Webber from Brooklyn held it.

    "As important an event as this is, you needed a unity of Democrats and Republicans to show Ahmadinejad that we're not going to accept a nuclear Iran."

    Buddy Macy of Little Fells, N.J., felt much the same way.

    "I'm so disappointed, upset," Macy said. "She would have brought 10,000-20,000 more supporters of Israel. People who were curious were stopped because of partisan action."

    The brouhaha started after Clinton pulled out after she learned Palin was invited. Three organizations supporting the rally threatened to pull out unless Palin was disinvited.
    "Republicans benefitted more than the Democrats did," political consultant Hank Sheinkopf said. "Why? Sarah Palin wanted to be there, but it looks like she was purposely told not to and rejected. It gives her standing, particularly among those people who are thinking about voting Republican anyway."
    Eric Shawn is reporting that today's Anti-Ahmadinejad (boycotted) rally drew 2,000. They made spin it but the numbers do not lie.

    Last year CBS reported 25,000.

    Smart move dems - you destroyed the rally against ahmadinijad and helped Palin.
