WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE, UR:

Politics Makes Strange Bedfellows: Why John Yoo is suddenly going soft on Obama. (Peter Robinson, 01.15.10, Forbes)

During a recent interview, John Yoo suddenly found himself speaking admiringly--not gushingly, but with unambiguous approbation all the same--about President Barack Obama [...]

"The administration came in with naivete about national security," Yoo said. "But they're getting better at it. With his [political] base screaming to get out of Afghanistan as fast as possible, [Obama's] decision to send more troops was wise. The president rejected the idea that Afghanistan would be another Vietnam."

While the interviewer absorbed the fact that this man had just called Obama "wise," Yoo paused. Intent throughout the interview, now for a moment he looked almost amused.
