The Republican narrative against Obama will be that he is inexperienced and out of his element, but if Hucklebee is the nominee, then they can't really make those arguments. Obama actually has more foreign policy experience than Hucklebee does.

5. And yet Obama has far more foreign policy experience than Edwards
Why doesn't anyone ever mention that?

Obama's undergraduate degree from Columbia was in international relations, and he has served on the Foreign Relations committee of the Senate for 2 years. He also has the endorsement of all the top liberal FP people (according to that long NY Times Sunday Magazine article). Edwards has no background in international relations and never served on the FP committee while in the Senate. Scorecard: Obama is better placed on foreign policy.
