The RNC talking points rap on John Edward seems to be that he lacks "experience," specifically in the area of national security, and that Cheney will clean him up in the debate for not knowing much about security.
Two points in response to this.
In essence, the message of the Bush campaign is that "with the experience we got making these huge mistakes, we are the best people to fix them."
Experience means nothing if are persisently misguided, and persistently misjudging the situation.
This is the kind of point that Edwards should hammer in the much-anticipated debate with Cheney ...
(2) Notwithstanding Josh Benson's argument in TNR, one of the most important times people will compare Cheney and Edwards is in the debate.
Edwards seems nothing if not a quick study, and the most important thing for the campaign is that Edwards can convey knowledge about national security, even if he forgets it at the end of the night.Posted by robe0419 at July 7, 2004 10:18 PM | TrackBack
