ON THE CAMPAIGN....
To the extent the Pres campaign can be conducted in a National Vacuum - i.e. concerning only domestic issues like education, social security,
environment, etc. - it helps Yo-Bama.
Domestic issues are a level playing field for Yo-Bama, where his inexperience doesn't obtain.
But World Events have recently conspired to change the equation: Russia's invasion of Georgia and threatening gestures toward other former Soviet Republics and even eastern Europe REMIND AMERICAN VOTERS THAT WE THERE ARE EVIL, DANGEROUS PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.
THESE EVENTS REMIND VOTERS WE HAVE ENEMIES.
AND, AS SUCH, WORLD EVENTS MAGNIFY YO-BAMA'S INADEQUACIES - NAMELY, OBMAMA'S FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE IS LIMITED TO HAVING TWICE BREAKFASTED AT AN INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PANCAKES.
OBAMA = RISKY IN A DANGEROUS WORLD.
OBAMA AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF VS. THE RUSSIANS? VS. A NEW COLD WAR? VS. TERRORISTS?
