For President Obama, the days leading up to his re-election kickoff have been spent straddling the precarious line between hawk and dove, and possibly redefining his party for years to come.

Obama has replaced JFK as a god-like figure whom all good people bow down and worship. The man can do no wrong.

Killing people for political expediency is not a re-definition of the Democratic Party.
