Ace quotes the Obama web site as saying that Obama "supports direct, Presidential-level talks with Iran without preconditions".
The problem is not, and has never been, meeting with our enemies, friends, or neutral countries.
The problem is not, and has never been, meeting at the appointee level without preconditions.
The problem is not, and has never been, meeting with our foes at the Presidential level.
The problem is meeting at the Presidential level without preconditions. Obama always tries to weasel, putting forth the straw man argument that Henry Kissinger supports meeting without preconditions, but fails to mention that he supports that only at the surrogate level.
The Obama campaign is fond of noting that the Bush Administration has met with Iran, so it's OK if Obama and Ahmadinejad do. But they fail to note that it is not President Bush himself, but lower-level officials, who attend the meeting.
I don't think we should meet with Iran at all, unless it's to accept their unconditional surrender. You don't negotiate with terrorists.
