Investors Business Daily, which can always be counted on to provide clear incisive opinion features a great column today about the Che Guevara image in an Obama volunteer office in Houston that has been all the talk of the blogosphere. Just an excerpt:

The display of the Castroite flag with Che’s picture on it sends a particularly disturbing message about his campaign.

These are the voters he’ll be indebted to should he win higher office.
