Obama was the candidate of the anti-war Left, including much of the Catholic anti-war Left.
His position regarding the war in Iraq was often used by Catholic supporters of Obama as a counter-weight to his abysmal pro-abortion views. Well, all the votes are counted and, surprise!, the Cabinet picks of Obama, as Ed Morrissey notes at Hot Air, indicate that he may well adopt policies which are anathema to anti-war activists. I have no doubt that quite a few people who voted for Obama may well be quite surprised at what we get. Unfortunately I do not think that the pro-abortionists will be among their number. We shall see.
