2. mostly stuff about Israel-US-Palestinian issues
and questions about Hamas, etc. Only news, once again, is that they didn't get a gaffe to flog to death.

4. I guess since there was no gaffe, they didn't consider it newsworthy.

6. No Spontaneity Like Bush and McCain - Too thoughtful?
KIDDING! :LOL:

Seriously, I think that Obama understands that unlike McCain, the slightest mis-statement would be broadcast 24/7 on Fox whereas McCain completely screws up basic facts such as saying that Al Queda (Sunni) is operating out of Iran (Shia) in which Lieberman had to correct him or just yesterday saying that Anbar Awakening occurred due to the surge (awakening actually predated the announcement of the surge by several months).

So, McCain can just speak stream of conscious and say whatever fits the mood with impunity because the media will give him a relative free pass. Of course, McCain sounds like an idiot by his numerous screw ups, but most people will never know it.

7. I did not like some of the things he said but considering the press conf was in Israel
I will contain my disappointment.
