Obama’s Target

This bit from the most recent LA Times/Bloomberg poll is just unbelievable to me:

Dominating the news during that period was the Russian invasion of Georgia. McCain has used the crisis to try to strengthen his upper hand on foreign affairs, calling for a tough U.S. posture against Russia to protect American interests in areas around the former Soviet Union.

The survey found that 63% of voters have confidence in Obama’s ability to deal wisely with an international crisis, while 77% feel that way about McCain.

What’s striking is that, by necessity, this means that a fairly substantial number of Democrats trust McCain’s ability to handle international problems, which is deeply disturbing. The Obama campaign has to find a way to both articulate how utterly bone headed John McCain is, and to effectively get the meme across.

I nominate Joe Biden, pun completely intended.
