Her favorite spot

A guy you could play pickup with

When Obama was visiting the troops during his foreign policy tour this week, he stopped by a basketball court and this is what happened.

The first time I watched the video, I thought, "Wow, that must drive Republicans crazy." It's not enough that he goes over and sits down with foreign leaders who endorse his plans. It's not enough that he speaks to a crowd of 200,000 about restoring America's image abroad. On top of all that, he gets to look cool, too.

This is not a perfect comparison, but the coolness factor Obama has in contrast to his opponent reminds me a little of all that nonsense in 2004 when voters said they'd rather have a beer with Bush than Kerry. That rightfully drove Democrats crazy. I imagine that is kind of how McCain supporters feel when Obama spots up from behind the arc.

Proof is in the pudding

McCain sees things where no one else does. He looks at the map to the left and sees a serious problem with the Iraq-Pakistan border. What, you don't see it? That's because you don't have the foreign policy experience McCain does.
