First, the quote from one of McCain’s advisers…

“Please keep running those 3:00 A.M. ads about who you want to answer the phone, because we like those.”

Then the take from Foreign Policy:

That’s how Randy Scheunemann, who is overseeing foreign policy issues for John McCain’s campaign, just summed up the obvious in a Council on Foreign Relations event here in Washington. […]

In other words, the more Clinton and Obama keep talking about how inexperienced the other is, the more it sticks for both.

Obama and Hillary may have raised over $90M last month, but that doesn’t mean ANYTHING to security moms.

Dems, take note.

Ha! Rasmussen actually did a poll about it!

The commercial was credited as one factor enabling Clinton to turn her campaign around in Texas last week. But, 42% of all voters said the person they’d most want to answer the phone was John McCain. Among all voters, 25% picked Clinton and another 25% named Obama as the person they’d want in the White House when a foreign policy crisis call arrived.

Among Democrats, 46% said they’d like Clinton to take that call while 36% named Obama.

Among Republicans, 79% named McCain while neither Democrat reached double digits.

Thanks Hillary!
