Re: The Post-Post-9/11 Era

Phil, I’ve been wondering the same thing. Obviously, national security and terrorism play to McCain’s strengths and Obama’s weaknesses but there is a danger in McCain’s attacks on Obama’s “9/10 mindset.” First, that charge plays much better in conservative circles than it does in the country as a whole. To some voters concerned about the economy, returning to the Clinton era doesn’t sound like such a bad thing. Second, if Obama is at all adept he can make Iraq and the willingness to wage Iraq-like ventures the main distinction between his and McCain’s approach to counterterrorism. After all, Obama has endorsed Afghanistan, foreign snatch-and-grab operations, and, pace the Obamacons, reauthorization of the Patriot Act.
