Professor: Don't Expect Change in Mideast Policy Under Obama [on Rashid Khalidi]
A Palestinian American professor who became the focus of anti-Obama attacks during the presidential campaign is warning against expecting major changes from Obama's White House. Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi's personal ties to Obama were cited by the McCain campaign in a widely ridiculed campaign ploy. Speaking in Egypt, Khalidi said he doesn't think Obama will reverse US policy in the Middle East.
Khalidi and Obama knew each other while teaching at the University of Chicago in the 1990s.
