Obama opposes excluding Russia from G8
Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama opposes excluding Russia from the Group of Eight industrial nations, as suggested by Republican rival John McCain, saying Moscow's cooperation was needed in the fight against nuclear proliferation.
"It would be a mistake," Obama told CNN in an interview when asked about McCain's proposal. CNN on Saturday released excerpts from the interview that will air on Sunday.
"Look, if we're going to do something about nuclear proliferation, just to take one issue that I think is as important as any on the list, we've got to have Russia involved," the Illinois senator said.

Looks like Obama is a reasonable person and a thinking one. It will be a novelty to have someone intelligent in the White House.
