Obama running for Bush's 3rd term?

A Wall Street Journal editorial finds some consistency in Sen. Obama's recent policy 'recalibrations' on eavesdropping, NAFTA, gun-rights, welfare reform, and government money for faith-based charities and they conclude:
Most Presidential candidates adapt their message after they win their party nomination, but Mr. Obama isn't merely "running to the center." He's fleeing from many of his primary positions so markedly and so rapidly that he's embracing a sizable chunk of President Bush's policy. Who would have thought that a Democrat would rehabilitate the much-maligned Bush agenda?
UPDATE: Charles Krauthammer also has assembled a good collection of recent Obama flip-flops here. (Hat tip: nogirlemen.)
