McCain camp: "Please keep running those 3:00 A.M. ads"
That's how Randy Scheunemann, who is overseeing foreign policy issues for John McCain's campaign, just summed up the obvious in a Council on Foreign Relations event here in Washington. After Mara Rudman, who is advising Hillary Clinton, very briefly addressed the issue of Clinton's foreign policy experience, Scheunemann chimed in with:

Please keep running those 3:00 A.M. ads about who you want to answer the phone, because we like those."

In other words, the more Clinton and Obama keep talking about how inexperienced the other is, the more it sticks for both.

Interestingly, Rudman highlighted Clinton's "travel and experiences on the ground" as first lady as proof that she's ready to answer that phone. If that's the "commander in chief threshold" that Clinton keeps talking about, it sounds pretty thin to me. At least as thin as Obama's argument that he lived for a while in Indonesia, and that somehow qualifies him to handle the complexities of the Middle East peace process, serve as commander in chief, and execute the other national security responsibilities of the Oval Office. In a dogfight with John McCain, Clinton and Obama had better have more bullets in the gun than that.

Yep, thanks Hillary for doing their work for them!

And my entire family is voting for her in PA. Her supporters are like lemmings who are marching the Democratic party off of a cliff. I wish somebody would wake them up.

2. I would rather have somebody with better judgement over experience any day
IWR, Kyle/Lieberman ammendement, voting for the use of Cluster bombs in civilian area, that isn't good judgement in my view

but perhaps the final straw was when she came out and said that she and mccain have more experience than Obama, who is just a speech, and therefore not qualified to be president, is what did it for me. For that reason, if Hillary wins the nomination, I WILL NOT vote president

3. This Is Just Another Reason She'll Never Be President
Her "ready on day one" meme doesn't pass the smell test against McSame.
