Now I think it’s a pretty big win for Obama. He’s scoring well.
Q from the hall to McC: Given economic constraints, how are we going to be a peacemaker?
Economic strength. America is the greatest force for good in the history of the world. But we have to know when to intervene. [This leaves a big opening for Obama.] Needs someone with the right judgement and experience. Obama doesn’t understand.
Obama: Yes, you’re right I don’t understand. I don’t understand why we invaded a country that didn’t attack us instead of getting the people who did. Iraq put a big strain not just on the army, but on the budget. Can’t be militarily strong in economic decline.
