When was the last time you have seen a Democratic presidential candidate hold his/her own during as debate about national security with a Republican candidate.
John Kerry? Al Gore? Bill Clinton? Mondale? Carter?…..
You have to go all the way back to Kennedy.
If you get past the the bric-a-brac of the punditry, you’ll see that Mr. Obama came in with a goal to achieve in the debate that wasn’t about just the debate. His performance was supposed advance a larger part of the strategy and message to the American voters.
I think you know what that is.
