Why Obama Backs the CorruptoCrat of Honduras

From IBD, via Powerline, a couple of reasons that Obama/Clinton are lining up with Zelaya.

1) Buttering up Chavez:

The Venezuelan despot has made political hay against the U.S. over its premature recognition of the Venezuelan coup leaders who tried to overthrow Chavez in 2002. Obama wants to avoid that this time

2) Buttering up to the Organization of American States (OAS)

The White House also wants to mollify the morally corrupted Organization of American States,...

3) (and a much darker, but entirely plausible, rationale)--Obama likes Statists:

Such a response says that democracy effectively ends with elections. It says rule of law is irrelevant and that rulers have rights, not responsibilities

Maybe it's all three. But with Obama, there is a track record of Statism and "ruler rights" which gives one pause to think.
